Checked out Emilie Clarks organization of objects, integration of art and life, stuff at Morgan Lehman Gallery website. Talked about using forest service instructional design, miming the rhetoric. Tia suggested taking on the role of anthropologist to contemporary forest service by visiting with them and shadowing if possible. Barks website seems to echo USFS website, talk to Michael about the design and about who to contact at USFS.
Tia recommended I look at the work of Amy Franceschini. Whoa! I feel aligned with her and Futurefarmers. She is coming to give an artist talk this week, which is amazing. Very exciting. Their artist statements are good for me to find while I'm trying to craft my own artistic intentions through language.
