On June 22nd Javier Sanchez decided the task at hand was to decide what one could do as an art project using only materials that could be found in the area. We thought about the intrusion of geometry and patterns, hypothetical extensions and interventions of already occurring phenomena, we had a taste of what it means to dabble in the thoughts and processes that inspired artists such as Richard Long, Robert Smithson, Hamish Fulton, Andy Goldsworthy or Michael Hiezer. The mountain is a place full of objects and spacial proportions not found in the urban areas of Las Vegas it served this workshop well as participants took to creating some of the best work yet for the Wildlife Divide.
Here are some photos.
Here are some pictures of the artists in action:
