without land art show sample

“Without Land” is a collaboration between Altman Studeny and the students of South Dakota School of Mines & Technology exploring the wildland-urban interface. As an inquiry into human interaction with the landscape, “Without Land” presents artifacts and documentation of walks taken by participants to the edge of the wild according their interpretation of that concept. At the conclusion of the show, a new group of participants will return all natural materials to the sites of their collection, closing the loop of “Leave No Trace” and allowing two strangers to share in another’s sense of sublime nature in a direct and profound way.
