|This month, I am a Fellow at AIRIE (Artist in Residence in Everglades). To find out more, check: AIRIE Link|
This residency is fascinating. Biologists, botanists, archivists make themselves available to the artists for maximum exposure to the harsh and subtle landscape. For back up, the excellent book on Everglades history, Swamp by Michael Grunwald, makes the socio-political history of the place come alive. I'm reading in tandem with Terry Tempest Williams' Broken World and Mission 66, extant 1956-66, to interpret landscape for national parks visitors.
