Summer House was a week long residency hosted by Nicole Lavelle in her family cabin located in Lagunitas, CA. Gathering fellow creatives of all types, we spent a week under the redwoods making, talking, and being together.

Under the moniker of Sunset Club, I lead three outings to watch the sunset in various nearby locations. In the spirit of the ongoing project, I wanted to pull people away from the insular world of cosy cabin for small moments of awe together.

I limited advertising of the outings by word of mouth around the cabin and a posted sign on the fridge, to create atmosphere of ease and willingness-based participation. I placed various photographs from previous outings inconspicuously throughout the cabin, using common place frames and unobtrusive sizes (3x5” to 8x10”). I also created a number of 1” metal pins for people to take away.
