Traces

Artifact No. 15
(2018)
archival pigment print
10 x 8 in.
 

Traces examines themes of permanence, extinction, colonization, and time through landscape, abstract sill life, catalog photography, and immersive soundscapes. The work, photographed within a single, walkable locale in the desert of Northern New Mexico, inverts the dominant, anthropocentric view of land, embracing the imagined perspective of the land itself from the point of view of a seemingly dormant arroyo, isolated mesa, or idle stone.

This landscape has been bent and shaped by the powerful forces of wind and water and marked by the evidence of animals and plant habitation, including the remnants of past and ongoing human activity. Together these traces represent the memory of the land and speak from the land’s perspective.

Traces invites viewers to reevaluate their human point of view, encouraging a conversation within and with others that questions our dominance over the natural world through considering the experience and memory of the land itself.
