Great Basin Exercises

The Great Basin Exercises is comprised of three site-specific installations that examine how the peculiar aesthetics of Utah’s Great Basin — so often described as a banal, empty, static, wasteland — have informed its patterns of development. This work was completed through the Center for Land Use Interpretation Residency Program in Wendover, Utah, in Summer, 2015.
