Back in March of 2012, I joined Mark Thompson’s CCA sculpture workshop, Post Nature, for a field trip to the Carrizo Plain, continuing a long trajectory of very ambitious, if not reckless, coordinated field trips. Really, I have always thought of these as collaborative artworks in and of themselves. We always gave a great deal of thought to the choreography of the student’s direct experience and ways to engage the various sites and landscapes we visited. We often made recon excursions to sort out logistics. On occasion of his sabbaticals and overbearing academic responsibilities, I taught the class for him as “Post Nature: Remix.” My preparations for this class, and ultimate coordination with him for my Casting Topologies interdepartmental coursework set the groundwork for Maria del Camino by looking more closely at land art and process based art. You can find the original post at 3/17/12. Always inspiring, the stuff of legends (at least in our own minds), and worthy of the late nights and more than a few drinks. Anyway, he just forwarded to me some nice pictures taken by Nicolas Morris, a student of his.
