Two hundred and ninety craters, built over a span of two America football fields, were dug in Palm Springs, CA in the winter of 2017. The craters in the desert were mapped and dug into the sediment, brightly lit neon tubes aligned the perimeters of each crater, which the viewer can see that from a distance, reads the exploded phrase “I am”. This book is a representation of the process and implementation of this installation in part of “Desert X”.
Soft-bound catalog for “I am”, which was installed in the Palm Springs desert in the winter of 2017.
Includes a custom ziplock bag, and a printed acetate sleeve.
