Fire Island / Follies

Short Fiction, 2014
Fire Island / Follies is a fictional memory piece consisting of 5 photographs
and 43 text segments written and edited in transit on my iPhone’s Notes application.
Screencapped, cropped, and assembled into tiny spiral-bound collectibles.
What happens when Stephen Sondheim and James Goldman’s “Follies” refuses
to leave the ears and experience of a man alone in a house full of vacationing women?
Fire Island / Follies is inspired by the ocean, communal living, and
the complexity of queer communities. Hand-numbered in a first edition of 100.
