Description


For this project, which coincided with the Sicardi Gallery exhibition Clarissa Tossin: Study for a Landscape, Clarissa Tossin joined Chris Taylor, Associate Professor of Architecture and Director of Land Arts of the American West at Texas Tech University, in a walk through Houston, followed by a public talk about their experience. Their walk offered a local context for discussing Tossin's projects in Brasília and for exploring ideas about land art and its history, urban design, architecture, and the practice of everyday life. The two were accompanied by photographer Logan Beck, who documented their walk.
