LAIR: A wild animal's resting place, or Liminal Artist Integration Residence was a land art project in Johnson Valley, CA which included over 300ft of rainwater channels. This project explored how to live in a food desert in Homestead Valley. This was a research based project which included mapping, contouring the land, and collecting a database of native plants to reintegrate into this place. This piece was exploring liminality as it relates to the harsh polarization within the United states, located in an extremely rural environment among a community with polarized political views. This space invited Artist living within Urban Environments (nearby Los Angeles, CA and San Francisco)to have a chance to explore the liminal state we are in culturally.
