Oh how we miss it, how we missed it all. The chance to bump into friends you haven’t seen in ages had at a dark location lit by candles scented buy cigarettes and wood floors soaked with rosé. Everyone dressed in their best but kept a certain withdrawal to appear with an effortless ease. The international set of wayward vagabonds creating an elegant mélange that would stalk the hallways of hotels, parties, and hotel parties. Those last days of the Hollywood Flaneur are done for now but the artifice lives on through technology with Ty Joseph’s installation Social Connecting.

Utilizing video and audio the experience pays homage LA nightlife and is trickled with audio that has been recorded in various hot spots from the Chateau Marmont to Delilah’s. The experience casts the attention of a lifestyle that cannot feasibly exist due to Covid-19 restrictions as well as the social mores which come with such acts of social intimacy. The comforting sensations come in perfect timing when isolation fatigue and the trickling of indoor dinning has the city in a frenzy of what is right and wrong. Processing the experience harks back to what it is about LA’s night life which fueled the dreams of the world and adds to the on going narrative of a city of glamour and grunge.
