The video Let's live happily ever after (2018) was made during a workshop with the Master students of Parsons University, Paris campus. It manipulates signs (texts, images ...) from a superstructure, a cruise liner, to reveal its programmatic machine. Such a construction is an architects or an engineers fantasy who desires to recreate the world.

The MS Lagoon Princess cruise liner on which Harvey embarks appears here as a large floating machine far from the dream promised in the brochures.
