Storied Landscape, Project in Tomakomai, Hokkaido, 2011.

I am participating in a symposium that will investigate the topic of “environment” from the perspectives of four artists. Please come join this opportunity to discuss nature up to and including our urban environment. My presentation will include the memory of dirt in historical layers that are crucial to the series “Philosophies of Dirt”. There will also be a newly created installation of four dirt pigments created specifically for this event along with the work on paper from this series.
