FIELDWORKS



In May 2019, Space Saloon returned to the high desert to hold a second iteration of the ‘community-in-residence’ festival. Titled FIELDWORKS, the event took its thematic inspiration from the cumulative methods of scientific field research—the approaches, techniques, and processes used to collect raw data outside of a laboratory setting. Project and workshop leaders questioned the constructs and apparatuses through which we perceive a place. Questions were raised on the production of sites of knowledge, and how quantified data is transformed into a qualification of meaning and significance. Projects modulated, enhanced, and manipulated one’s perception of landscape through the crafting of new imaginative spaces. The ultimate goal was to break down the constructs of knowledge production in order to discover new methods for presenting subjective realities.







PROJECTS

Teams of students and designers lived and worked together to develop site-specific projects which questioned notions of context and place.
