Spiral Found: Land Art Under Lockdown II

For the upcoming May 2021 University of Maryland exhibition Spiral Found: Land Art Under Lockdown II, students in a new advanced course, LARC 689C, Land Art: Interventions, Mediations, Meditations, will present artwork made during eight exercises under extraordinary circumstances over the course of the Spring 2021 semester. The exercises, all related to land art, were titled 1000 Paces, Sound Sponge, Stasis, Displacement, Voids, Chair, Monolith and Spiral Found. The five student artists (one from Art, one from Art and Education, two from Architecture and one from Landscape architecture) utilized chance and other novel procedures, such as rolling dice or throwing darts into a map, as well as art practices such as drawing, photography and video, to create their work. The results, much like landscape itself, are in turns familiar, unsettling and uncanny. Given the remarkable circumstances of this second year of Covid-19 restrictions, the ingenuity and creativity of the artists and the combination of gravitas and humor in their work are also extraordinary. The exhibition is a testament to the engagement, energy and resourcefulness of these five pioneering LARC 689C Land Art students.

Fibromyalgia is more often found in women than in men. 

Part of this monolith is covered with smooth rock forms. This represents the image put up by suffers of being "perfectly fine." While the other side is rough in texture.

Fibromyalgia is a chronic pain illness involving widespread musculoskeletal pain along with fatigue, memory, sleep, and mood issues. There is no current cure. Suffers find themselves self medicating and pushing to advocate for understanding from others.

If I could create a large scaled earthwork, it would be a large claw like mark imbedded onto the grown with the patches of grass pulled back. The large claw like mark displays the sensation of fibromyalgia pain.
