Artist Statement - Community Project
After documenting various community situations such as urban community houses and Rainbow Gatherings, I was drawn to Oregon to explore intentional community and sustainable living the Pacific Northwest is widely known for. I started with Alpha Farm: Alpha not only means “beginning,” but this community is one of the longest sustaining communities of its kind in the country. What started as a month long visit turned into a two year residency, and the chance to document moments of community living throughout the changes in the seasons. Spending time as an active participant in community gave me insight and understanding that enhanced my documentation. I also had access to the quiet moments that tell a story and portray a feeling.
I intend to focus on community and sustainable living long term. Along with established rural communes, such as Alpha Farm, I also will document spontaneous and temporary communities, such as Rainbow Gatherings, homeless camps, and urban community houses. I will continue to document communities in the Oregon Coast Range, but also intend to travel and show that this lifestyle exists all over the country. Communities are reflections of cultural differences and similarities in different regions of the country.
