reproducing Carleton Watkins’ 1889 photograph,
Lake George Cling Peaches.
Land barons began advertising in the 1880s, encouraging easterners to invest
and settle in southern California. Carleton Watkins, renowned for capturing
the sublime in nature, was hired to depict the irresistible economic opportunities
of the region. Despite a desert climate heavily dependent on irrigation, southern
California was marketed as a land of inexhaustible agricultural potential.
Watkins’ photograph of a crate of peaches illustrates lushness beyond measure
while overlooking the true costs of cultivation where water is scarce.
We all know the success of this characteristically American marketing scheme.
Farmers flocked to this region and with the help of agricultural technology,
grew a new reality – America’s fruit basket. Today we have come to expect
limitless plenty and limitless choices. We offer you this selection of Peaches
as an icon of technology improving nature, engineered and marketed to keep
us expecting more.

June 26 – August 8, 2015 Exhibition -
Milwaukee/Milwaukie Museum at
Pacific Midwest 2.0, INOVA Gallery, Milwaukee WI
The Milwaukee/Milwaukie Museum invited the artists from
Milwaukee, WI and Miwaukie, OR to visit their respective historical
societies and respond to what makes history. Lindsay’s installation,
First White Boy, addresses lost histories with the use of traditional
ritual garments. The work includes newspaper documentation and
four christening gowns. The first gown represents Milwaukee’s
first white boy, based information found on a on brass plaque in the
Milwaukee Historical Society basement. Two red gowns memorialize
the unidentified last Menomonee baby and the last unidentified
Potowami baby before the native tribes’ expulsion. The last gown
represents the undocumented first white girl born in Milwaukee.
Barbara’s installation Resident Birds of Milwaukee was a Victorian
bell jar covering a pair of miniature cast metal hands nestled in a
bed of feathers, holding an iPod. A looped recording of birdsong of
resident birds of the area issued forth from under the bell jar. In
response to the collection at the Milwaukee County Historical
Society’s collection of taxidermied birds arranged in lifelike poses
under bell jars,Ciurej created this sound installation to probe the
impulse and impossibilities of preservation, capture and containment.

Publications - Images from Processed ViewsStrant Magazine [VOL 004; ISS 003] Apetite Not to Scale
”Sustenance aside, we consume to manifest belief and foster personal bias.
We consume much like a camera produces a photograph, for every input there
is an output. While the camera might be understood in these terms,
light as the input and the photograph as output (the camera being a
finite machine), it does not account for variables of perception, in how we
assign meaning to the output and the infiniteness of perception.
Perception grows from finite means, which grows understanding into
practice. The photograph therefore is a function of perception,
which is to say, it is a fulfillment of the partiality to which we already prescribe."
