Jonah Freeman, Justin Lowe and Jennifer Herrema present Scenario In The Shade a new project based off a book of amateur ethnographic studies on the youth subcultures of Southern California. The collection, compiled and edited by journalist Elizabeth Stone, is a tour through 150 years of marginalized and often dissenting groups. Behaviors, patterns and power structures are chronicled in a collage of unconstructed data, half finished studies and, in certain cases, pure fiction.

Freeman and Lowe construct a new film that explores a selection of narratives from the book through a mise-en-scène comprised strictly of objects and environments. The film will be presented within an exhibition of their signature architectural sequence of interiors.

Accompanying the film and exhibition will be a sonic mash-up concocted and compiled by Jennifer Herrema who has pulled together a veritable bitches brew of contributors that include Neil Hagerty, Bobby Gillespie, MGMT, Lizzi Bougatsos, Alexis Taylor and Kurt Vile to name a few. This will act as both soundtrack to the film and spatial audio mix within the environments.
