Penn Hills Resort

10. 12 | Poconos, PA | Penn Hills Hotel + Resort

The Penn Hills Hotel and Resort was abandoned by its owner in the late 2000s after failing to pay taxes. The expansive property resembles a time capsule: heart-shaped bathtubs, floor-to-ceiling shag carpeting and circle beds. Seven exclusive couples were invited on a late-night getaway to the resort in the Poconos. There were live music and drinks. They were then checked into their rooms and given time to get intimate in whatever way they liked. We created a site-specific track to be playing from the receiver of old phones that we found in the hotel.
