Reclamation Minutes: March 28, 2011
Location: Sculpture Garden off Avenue of the Dead between Pyramid of the Plumed Serpent and Pyramid of the Sun
While discussing a proposal to include our Open Call in upcoming issue of the Journal of Aesthetics and Protest, “Grassroots Modernism”, we revisited several conceptual concerns that have arisen over the course of Reclamation’s first two years. Questions we asked ourselves include:
What does “nature” mean?
Are we hippies?
What kind of collaboration are we inviting with our open call?
Why didn’t we bring any water?
What are we trying to do by representing nature?
How does Reclamation’s practice evolve?
After several hours of meditation and deliberation, we’ve come up with a few answers we like. More soon, pending the decision of the friendly folks at the Journal of Aesthetics and Protest.
