Response & Responsibility

Response & Responsibility

Response & Responsibility is a collaborative performance, sculpture, and series of inkjet prints which document the burning of a barbed-wire wrapped dining set. This project was done in a large natural burn scar in Central Utah using discarded barbed wire with Alec Bang.

A response to the conversation of land use in the west.
A response to the barbed wire fences which segment the land into manageable
parcels.
A response to a large wildfire which burned down some of those fences in Central Utah.
A response to the colonization which put those fences there, displacing millions of Indigenous people.
A responsibility to begin repairing the damage caused those actions.
