Throw a few Brooklyn artists into an abandoned beach town in Bridgeport, Connecticut, and this is the result. A troupe of creatives got together this September, prior to the current demolition of the long-abandoned community, to send it off in style. Under the direction of Ben Wolf and Caledonia Curry (you know her as Swoon), the peninsula had residents once again. Wolf is now working his magic on some abandoned places in Detroit—maybe next he can take over Far Rockaway.

What was the atmosphere like in the temporary artists village in Connecticut? Below is a video of a performance ritual that the Apothecary Ladies, with Volatile Blossom, performed while there.
