Presently I am involved in a project that embarks on telling the story of a society of meteorite researchers, their expeditions, and their attempts to explain our cosmic connection, our beginning, and our desire to seek answers to the grand, mysterious, and unknowable. The emergent work takes the form of video, installation, and artifacts, photos, expedition logs, journals, dirt samples, and field recordings.
My goals surrounding this project are the following:
Research, record, and present an account of incidents/events surrounding the society of meteorite researchers, their expeditions, and discoveries.
Compile and catalog video, artifacts, photos, expedition logs, journals, dirt samples, and field recordings from societies records.
Reengineer and update desert research tools in order to conduct field excursions following the routes of the societies original desert expeditions.
