Land Arts of the American West at Texas Tech University
"LAND ARTS 2014 EXHIBITION"
April 3 - May 2, 2015
Land Arts of the American West at Texas Tech University is a transdisciplinary field program investigating the intersection of geomorphology and human construction. It is a semester abroad in our own back yard. Each fall students venture across the American southwest camping for a two months while traveling six-thousand miles overland to explore natural and human forces that shape contemporary landscapes—ranging from geology and weather to cigarette butts and hydroelectric dams.
The exhibition culminates the semester-long transdisciplinary field program Land Arts of the American West at Texas Tech University and presents documents, objects and constructions by architecture graduate students Michael Norris, Gabriela Reyes, and Anthony Zuefeldt with artists J. Eric Simpson and Rhode Island School of Design alumna Matti Sloman.
