Hurricanes are driven by the laws of physics. As weather patterns have become more extreme, the human responses to these events have been both rational and absurd. Using human narratives and the weather data of recent storms such as Hurricanes Katrina, Hurricane Sandy, and the Louisiana Flooding of 2016, this show explores the dissonance and co-existence between the physics of weather and the theater of human responses.
Lost Porches is a larger metaphor that tries to express the human struggle of coming to terms with what is lost during a storm and with what one tries to hold onto during the rebuilding process.
