My reflection of the Rural Field School experience. Our rural field trip to Green River and then coming back to experience BBB with only a few rural students (bffs now).
Field school extended! Staying in Boulder CO and thinking of peoples place in a place and the role of place in people. Beach blanket Bonanza! Or Babylon or Banana! Exploring Green River for the second time. A collaborative drawing and collaborative writing to end the trip.
My first journal is a reflection on a combination of Matt Fluharty’s lecture and our time here in green river, considering how rural community building differs from communities in urban places, and how that line can be blurred. My second journal is a community building exercise, compiling the thoughts of my friends and colleagues.
This journal illustrates my weaving patterns and process.
Day One of walking around Antonito, I meet Cathy Salazar. She is a descendent of one of the original families to settle in the San Luis Valley. Day two: Richard DeHerrera traces his lineage back several generations to both Spain and Indigenous communities.
The first spread has sketches from our western excursion that are based on objects (rocks and bullets) collected at the uranium site near Green River Utah. It also has stamp and drawing experiments. The second spread has schematics for my final project for field school.
