Music by Paul Huckerby. Performed by Paul Huckerby and Marisa J. Futernick.
Land. Oil. Water. Southern California broken down to its most basic elements. A surreal advertisement for a world of tacos, movie-set sheriffs, and endless gallons of swimming pools. Let the surf-guitar sounds wash over you as we float across Los Angeles in search of the cheapest tank of gas in the City of Angels.
Shot on intensely saturated 35mm color slides, featuring a playful narrative told through intertitles, set to an original soundtrack.
Investment Opportunity is a new billboard commission at Kingsgate Project Space in West Hampstead, London. On display until November 3, 2018, the work can be seen from Kilburn Grange Park or from Kingsgate Road, London NW6.

Experiencing Architecture: Inviting Dialogue
Saturday 21 April 2018, 6:30–10pm
Walmer Yard, London W11
Book tickets here
Trump Tower, a new short film by Marisa J. Futernick, will be presented by the Royal Academy as part of an event exploring the dynamic and reciprocal nature of architectural experience.
The title Experiencing Architecture: Inviting Dialogue is both a reflection of the event’s intention and the belief that a meaningful experience of architecture is one that results in a reciprocal and evolving relationship with the spaces we inhabit.
This event comprises two parts: one an experiential encounter, the other a symposium. In the first, which takes place on Saturday evening, a dialogue will be invited through an experience of architecture – an exchange between building, visitor, and performer. Participants will be invited to inhabit and occupy the four houses of Walmer Yard, designed by Peter Salter, while experiencing performances that experiment with the possibilities the houses offer for sound, narrative, and movement. This experience will be followed by a symposium, lasting all of the following day, at the Royal Academy. The symposium will put the night’s events into context as part of a programme of presentations and discussions.
Participants at Walmer Yard include:
Marisa J. Futernick
