Axiom: w|edge folk:land Survey Project

Jacklyn Brickman's avatar Jacklyn Brickman

w|edge folk:land Survey Project is a multifaceted mobile art installation designed to incite social engagement acting on the premise that the health of our land is a direct reflection of us folk who inhabit it. The goal of “w|edge” is to provoke dialogue about environmental and social interest concerning sustainability via survey and art making methods through: 1) Written surveys regarding participant’s relationship with the area and that of their home. 2) Participants assist me in a artful land survey by obtaining data using measurements, observations and tests including soil, water (pH), light and sound which is processed into drawings on location by myself and participants. Axiom will include set surveys during ArtPrize in addition to exhibiting data results and ephemera from previous w|edge surveys exploring the finite and overlapping edges between folk and land.
