During the month of May 2012, an 8'x8' floating platform moored in the Fort Point Channel in downtown Boston was continually "remodeled" into symbolic physical and metaphysical spaces. Heidi Kayser used a kayak to paddle and bring to the dock everything used to create the sets. In this short one-channel video, cinematographer Raber Umphenour uses the act of securing a large armchair and end table with lamp, to portray sublime ideas of isolation and melancholy mixed with quiet acceptance. The idea of "glitch" appears in the sense that the viewer's expectations are indeed thwarted, as if a line of code that scribes the landscape has been rewritten to include another dimension in space and time, - a timeless and endless moment.

The 2:20 min. piece is meant to be shown as a one-channel video on a loop, and viewer's are asked to watch the piece while sitting in the same chair used in the film.
