DARK STUDIO (2019) celebrated radical play. Borealis transformed their apartment into a series of immersive installations including video performance, light projections, nooks, drag, personal nightmares, conspicuously planted props, and a live, closed-circuit video surveillance system streaming between rooms of the home-studio. Dark Studio put an apple on the bed. Dark Studio lost sight of the moon. Dark Studio was the last great party.
The production process took two months of in-home construction, recording, and installation. The party lasted approximately six hours. About thirty people experienced the event. Documentation of such secret societies might have looked different had we known what was to come; the lack of documentation takes on a new weight as we try to look back on all that we were to each other and hope to be again.
