Charlotte Becket and Roger Sayre
Charlotte Becket and Roger Sayre work collaboratively on public projects that explore and reframe environmental materials and contexts. Their project for Socrates Sculpture Park, Full Tilt, depicts a neighborhood “bodega” façade tilted on its axis and embedded in the ground. The work speaks to the demise of local businesses while positing a playful altered reality, one in which the small neighborhood deli is relocated and operating in a parallel, horizontal universe. This work is a reflection of the rapid commercial zoning, changing development presence, and economic disparity widespread in the neighborhood surrounding the park. The title Full Tilt suggests the literal collapse of a structure, as well as the consequences of economic and social shift on a community.
