The Jet Star of the Future
Reed, wood, rope, paper, data, 2013

The piece contains two narratives that are interwoven. First, there is
the story of the night Hurricane Sandy slammed and destroyed the
Jet Star Rollercoaster, in Seaside Heights. The rollercoaster is entirely
build of weather data from local weather stations at Seaside Heights
and ocean buoys that tracked Hurricane Sandy’s path during the night
of Oct 29, 2012. The second story is the interaction between the dragon
(Hurricane Sandy) and the crane, suggesting what a future version of
the Jet Star might look like.
