Commemorative graphics and images for a changing state of FLORIDA. The title of is taken from a custom license plate, which boldly declared: "FLA 4-EVER!" This is a funny contradiction, since the limestone shelf which makes up Florida emerges out of the ocean only temporarily in geologic time. . . The Sunshine State is therefore quite fluid and ephemeral.
A plurality of identities linger online. Tauches works from the memory of Florida, as opposed to the real thing, inspired by: tourist postcards, landscape paintings, highway signage, an early 20th century botanist, Miccosukee Indian skirt patterns, and the looming threat of hurricanes.
The only real artifact is video footage documenting the ocean at Alligator Point, where rising sea levels are causing erosion and flooding.

*a modest proposal: buy property for 5 or 10K in an area which will be reclaimed by the ocean and therefore no longer viable as a real estate investment. Maintence of it's materiality is no longer necessary. (I would keep it quite empty! visit when I wanted. . .leave when it gets stormy. . .enjoy it as a glorified camping site, a connection point with Nature who has the power to take back/negotiate new borders of her land. . .document this place [images, sounds]) as it disappears--in slow stages--back into the ocean.)
