When donating, please designate that you would like your donation to fund Leah Wilson – Distillations of Place HJ Andrews Experimental Forest project. Thank you.
In October 2012 I was an artist in residence at HJ Andrews Experimental Forest in Blue River, Oregon. Beginning with the Average Colors of the South Yuba River: a mathematical determination of an aesthetic value project in 2007, I have completed several year-long projects that track changes in the environment over time. Now I have made the decision to adopt HJ Andrews Experimental Forest as a life-long project of investigation.
With this project I am exploring concepts of what it is to intimately know a place. How long does it take to develop a ‘sense of place’ with a particular landscape? What is the value of developing such a relationship with a particular place? What is the relationship between scientific knowledge of ecology and personal connection?
