From  Purgatory in Paradise , a Performative Installation by Emily Miller.   Purgatory in Paradise  is a darkly comedic ode to the Florida lifestyle featuring high priestesses, a confessional booth, and a communion mass. It is a Requiem for motivation at odds with a balmy happy hour. It is about living as a local in tourism-driven Florida. It is about pain pills and bikinis. It is about that blank complacency you feel when you take a sip from your rum-runner while your brain sautés on an August night...framed, of course, by the most beautiful sunset in the world.
