David Sanchez Burr on the Art of Maintenance and Decay
David Sanchez Burr is a mixed-media artist and assistant professor of media arts and technology at New Mexico Highlands University. Join him in discussion about New Citadel II and his efforts to convey ideas of maintenance, generation and decay of the complex systems and structures that surround us. New Citadel is an ongoing project that presents a view of social, urban and ecological change through time based art and speaks to theories of urbanism, the postindustrial landscape and shelter as a perpetual social struggle. The work allows for the design, construction, and disintegration of a city to reveal and critique the chaotic processes that make our urban landscape.
Support for the Art Bite series comes from Nevada Arts Council and Nevada Humanities.
