About this project
I am an artist and photographer. Last year, I completed a site-specific installation on the Land Heritage Institute, a living land museum near San Antonio, Texas.
My Project Since the location of this public art installation is rather remote (by design. Please see the video), I would like for more people to be able to experience the images I've created. To this end, I have designed a print project. Your support will allow me to create a set of limited edition of prints, posters and note cards so I can spread the images to a wider audience.
Background On this land are several human habitation sites that vary in age from 10,000 years old to the mid-1970's when it ceased operations as a farm. One of the complexes of buildings was constructed in the 1850s using the stacked-stone method of construction. Most of the buildings have fallen to ruin, but the one that remains was a place where corn was stored in the winter to feed animals (and perhaps humans as well). The building measures 12 x 13 feet and has a corrugated steel roof, probably replacing the original roof in the 1930s. The ruins of the original stone house can be viewed nearby.
The Corn Crib is off the electrical power grid, so by necessity I had to make a very green project. To light my photographs, I constructed back-lit LEDs panels and powered them with solar panels. Other than the glowing photos, the interior of the space is dark.
Here are the images in the series. They are super high resolution and would look great in a home or office setting. Their Names refer to their position inside the Corn Crib.
Here are the 5" x 7" note cards with envelopes:
