As part of the Santa Fe Art Institute's ongoing season "Half Life: Patterns of Change," we are proud to present interdisciplinary artist and educator, Eve Adree Laramee to lecture at Tipton Hall on Friday, April 29 at 6pm. Eve will also hold a workshop Saturday and Sunday April 30th & May 1st.

Eve Andree Laramee is an interdisciplinary artist and researcher, and activist working at the confluence of art and science, specializing in the environmental and health impacts of Cold War atomic legacy sites.

At her lecture, Eve will be speaking about her most recent projects dealing with the environmental and health impacts of our atomic legacy, including her 2009 installation, "Halfway to Invisible" about uranium mining in the Grants, NM area; and her current work in progress, "Slouching Towards Yucca Mountain" a Sci-Fi Western dealing with the problem of radioactive waste from the nuclear power industry and nuclear weapons.

The lecture/workshop will also expand upon her collaborations with environmental scientists mapping the waterborne radioactive plume beneath the Fernald uranium foundry site in Ohio; and a water filter project in collaboration with a materials scientist. Workshop participants will visit the National Museum of Nuclear Science and History, and if access is permitted, Kirtland Airforce Base.

WHERE: San Diego State University, San Diego, California
Please join us for a special visiting artist presentation by Chris Taylor, Director of the Land Arts of the American West program at Texas Tech University: West and Chris will discuss the Land Arts program he heads at TTU— an immersive, interdisciplinary field study program where students spend a full semester “expanding the definition of land art through direct experience with the full range of human interventions in the landscape, from the inscriptions of pictographs and petrogylphs to the construction of roads, dwellings, and monuments, as well as traces of those actions.” Each year Land Arts travels more than 6,000 miles to live and work for over fifty days in the landscape while visiting sites such as Chaco Canyon and Roden Crater, the Grand Canyon and Double Negative, the Wendover Complex of the Center for Land Use Interpretation and Spiral Jetty, Marfa and Cabinetlandia, the Very Large Array and The Lightning Field.
Chris will be traveling with Kim Stringfellow’s Art, Environment, and Place SDSU Honors course students over the following weekend for a culminating field study trip at the Salton Sea.

THURSDAY- OCTOBER 22, 2009 6:00-9:00

UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism Center for Photography,
Northgate Hall, U.C. Campus Hearst & Euclid

Stringfellow attacks her subject as a historian, a collector, and a photographer with the vision of a Walker Evans on acid.

—Danny Lyon, author of The Bikeriders and Conversations with the Dead

In conjunction with this event, I will be leading the Land Use & The Built Environment: Photographing the Albany Bulb workshop with Fotovision on October 24th & 25th, 2009 — 10:00 am to 5:00 pm. Please visit Fotovision’s Web site for more information and to sign up for this workshop.
Workshop description: Artist/educator, Kim Stringfellow will lead a three-day photographic exploration and collaborative photo book project focusing on the built and cultural landscape of the Albany Bulb, a 30-acre spit of shoreline landfill owned by the City of Albany, which has been “reclaimed” by a variety of interest groups including urban artists, homeless, dog-walkers, teenagers, and environmentalists.
In this unique and challenging workshop participants will have the opportunity to collaboratively produce a book project in the span of a weekend. The workshop will begin with an introductory lecture by Stringfellow on Friday evening. Saturday will consist of a field workshop day where workshop participants document the site photographically supported by field notes and interviews of park users when possible. Sunday will be spent organizing and sequencing the photographs into a print on demand collaborative book project to be printed at
Additional help with book production, editing and design during the workshop will be offered by Fotovision program director, Adrianne Koteen. PLEASE NOTE: This class will also be meeting on Friday night, October 23rd, from 6-9pm.


Artist Kim Stringfellow has announced her new project JACKRABBIT HOMESTEAD.

The project, "is a forthcoming book and web-based multimedia presentation featuring a downloadable car audio tour exploring the cultural legacy of the Small Tract Act in Southern California's Morongo Basin region near Joshua Tree National Park. Stories from this underrepresented regional history are told through the voices of local residents, historians, and area artists—many of whom reside in reclaimed historic cabins and use the structures as inspiration for their creative work."
