Statement
There is a spirit in the landscape that possesses us and though we may leave the land behind that spirit will always follow us. That is something I learned from my formative years living in a rural town in New Mexico. Through the stories we shared, from ancient times of the Navajo and Hopi people of the region to modern times, of crime, miracles, unexplainable phenomena, and shapeshifting beasts that roam the high desert, there is an inseparable memory attached to the land. As time passes these stories turn to myth and though new memories occur and often replace the past, they add to the growing history indexical to the land.
