EACH CAMPFIRE LIGHTS ANEW, 2010
Project Row Houses, University of Houston, and Skydive; Houston, TX
Each Campfire Lights Anew was part of a larger exhibition entitled Proposals for a Socialist Colony presented by Skydive in Houston, Texas. The project involved a camping trip with students from the University of Houston and resulted in an evening of campfire cooking and singing, a campfire booklet, as well as a full-length film of the event. The project examined the essential nature of fire and the cultural significance of campfire circles throughout history, as well as their rarity in contemporary society.
