    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.
