The Utopian Wake centers on two photographic projects that
explore the marks utopian practice leave on built environments,
and the ways these distilled visions are reapportioned over time.
Total Confidence, New Life relays the combination of science,
science fiction and utopian ecology found at the Biosphere 2
project in Arizona. The series Rancho Rajneesh and Young Life attempts
to capture what is left of a would-be utopia built by the
Rajneeshee movement in eastern Oregon, a site that was later
renewed by Young Life Ministries. Both of these sites attest to
the fluidity and friction of the utopian impulse.
