The research for this project began with an excavation of personal memory related to site that resulted in an ecological and social field guide to the New Jersey pine barrens, along with a set of tools, and a durational action. The walk traced the perimeter of an aerial bomb training site, located in an ecologically rare dwarf pine plain, during the season’s first snow. A small video camera strapped to the back of my head captured a receding landscape and the mark making action in video.
Tools: Pine, willow, cranberry dye, cochineal, pine tar, leather strap, found iron tine cultivator
