I Am by Tavares Strachan (Artist),‎ Shaheen Merali (Author, Editor),‎ Amanda Hunt (Author),‎ Erica Sellers (Contributor),‎ Neville Wakefield (Introduction),‎ Brooke DiDonato (Photographer),‎ David Blank (Photographer)

Two hundred and ninety craters, built over a span of 4 acres, the size of two American football fields, were dug in Palm Springs, CA in the winter of 2017. The holes in the desert were mapped and dug into the sediment, brightly lit neon tubes aligned the perimeters of each crater. From a distance, the viewer can read the exploded phrase “I am”. This book is a representation of the process and implantation of this installation.

Curated by Desert X
