Camp Little Hope, Dirtmaker (Site) 2016

Camp Little Hope is a team of artists.  With a combined background in fine arts, education, design, economics, engineering, anthropology, and community engagement, they imagine new worlds through public artworks, curatorial interventions, designed artifacts, published information, and catalyzed epiphanies.

Camp Little Hope presents Handmade Landscapes, an arts and research exhibition exploring the geography, botany and the impact of recent human land use on Gribble Gap. The research presented in the exhibit informed the creation of Dirtmaker, an environmental sculpture installed on the campus trail system.  As Dirtmaker disappears, it replenishes the depleted minerals int eh forest’s soil.

This project is sponsored by WCU’s Sustainable Energy Initiative, a student drive, student supported fee.
