In October I had the privilege of participating in a two-week residency at Andrea Zittel’s Wagon Station Encampment, a part of her Institute for Investigative Living in Joshua Tree, California. The experience gave me time and space to think about upcoming projects. It was also an opportunity to learn different ways in which people can live, as conceived by Zittel. Residents share a communal kitchen, composting toilets, outdoor showers, and work together on her land during what is called the Hour of Power once a day. I was inspired by meeting like-minded creative people and exploring the vast and varied landscape that surrounds the breathtaking Joshua Tree National Park.
