ABOUT PARANOIA MAN IN A RAT FINK ROOM
Storefront for Art and Architecture is closing its doors for good. The real estate vultures have descended to feed on the malnourished carcass of its signature Kenmare Street space. Its replacement will most likely be a Juice Press supplement administered through fiber-optic eyeliner. The official announcement is that it will be something called "SAN SAN." A flagship store for BAMA Cosmetic Pharmaceuticals, "OCTOPUS Entheobotanical Data Networks" and "Fata Morgana Entertainment Systems" brought to you in a fancy new package designed by interior starchitect Henri Erkins. "A multiplatform consumer experience where virtual and tactile interaction merge in a new marketing sphere." A kind of combination Pizza Hut-Taco Bell-Google daydream for the Lower Manhattan demographic. But before the polish of recycled paper, space rock, and smartphone flirtation bring about point-of-purchase orgasms, Jonah Freeman and Justin Lowe have arranged for an interim scenario.
