Be in the Wildlife: Process/Experience
Currently this section shares process, tests, and other works inspired by my artist residency in Joshua Tree National Park. The photo-based works represent a range of perspectives on the park gained through interviews and include those of local elementary students, park employees, residents, as well as the my own and connects back to photography’s tangled relationship to space, memory, and time.
As of September 2020 Joshua trees (yucca brevifolia) are temporarily protected through the California Endangered Species Act. This makes them the first plant protected in the state due to threats posed by climate change.
