The Tenderer (with Anonymous was a Vlog) was created for the 2019 Joshua Treenial, an invitational exhibition held at BoxoHouse in Joshua Tree, California. The installation consisted of a series of short experimental films about adapting to life in the desert. The films were presented inside a site-responsive DIY screening hut made of felt, thrift store blankets, tarps, and painted sticks. Viewers were invited to sit inside on upholstered tree stumps and watch the program on a monitor. Program 2 was also screened alongside films by Jeff Frost and Cristopher Cichocki. The screening was projected on the natural landscape of nearby boulders at night.
Special thanks to Bernard Leibov.
