land art, environmental art


Cusp: shovel and hand carved portion of Patuxent River (Maryland) 50'. Cusp, the second in a land art series at a section of the Patuxent River that is managed by a dam, follows the shape of the shoreline and points towards the land's boundaries. By carving the land, like skin, the piece references loss and scarring by humanity. Over several months, the void filled with plastic bags, bottles, and receipts. When the dam reopens, the land art will be submerged. A spoken word piece accompanies the documentation of the earthwork.
