The Remade Landscape

I've been thinking a lot about the idea of the pristine landscape, the real wilderness, and how it doesn't exist- it never really has. We are always remaking the landscape and the ideal of pure wilderness is just a myth- made by us. I thought maybe I could somehow get closer to that idea if I removed the very reason I took the photo to begin with and was left with a "subjectless" view. Also impossible....

...And The Glamour of Process

 We actually camped out on the jobsite for this install...

 Center panels up, scaffolding.

Not a bad view..I have to say, there's something about the light on Long Island

The Celestial Mural

After a year of delays, it's finally up- 7 canvas panels making up a 20x25' ceiling of constellations. Thanks to my brother Dave for installing with me!
