Wild Times

Wild Times merges new media, social engagement, and a 2,650 mile hike as an invitation to explore wildness as a geographic ideal and a state of mind.

Beginning in mid-April 2014, artist Susan Robb embarks on a 5-month journey from Mexico to Canada on the Pacific Crest Trail. Using the trail as a nomadic studio, and her experiences as inspiration and medium, she will create digital works—photos, videos, and 3D files—periodically sending them to a series of West Coast museums and art centers. There they will be printed, projected, and installed, evolving into cumulative exhibitions.
