Two young lovers, Sebastian and Alex meet at sunrise on a sublimely beautiful beach near L.A. to celebrate their anniversary. Our aim here is to make visitors feel distinctly “queer” in their own skins, not entirely sure where the boundaries of “real” and “virtual,” “self” and “other” are or ought to be. The visitor begins the experience in the position of an observer standing near the shore looking out to sea. At this point the visitor can choose which character’s point of view to take—Mary-Helen—who is an outside observer, or one of the lovers, Sebastian or Alex.
Sebastian sits in front of a black doctor in a white coat sitting
behind a cheap metal desk in a small, hot office. A fan whirs, voices and noise come through the window from the busy Bamako street. In the corner, we see Mary-Helen standing with the diary. Sebastian looks older, thinner, exhausted. He has grown out his beard. The doctor tells him his diagnosis.
