Land Art of the 21st Century: Land Art Generator Initiative at Fly Ranch
by Elizabeth Monoian (Editor), Robert Ferry (Editor)
Set in the remote corner of Northern Nevada lies a magical stretch of land called Fly Ranch. With no access to the electrical grid or other public utilities, the site provides an opportunity to reinvent what human settlement can aspire to be in a world that has awakened to the impacts of anthropogenic climate change and the overconsumption of natural resources. Land Art of the 21st Century catalogs the responses to an invitation from the Land Art Generator and Burning Man Project to creatively design systems for energy, water, agriculture, shelter, and regeneration—a proof of concept for how to live in beauty and harmony with the earth. The results are a glimpse into the near future of our sustainable landscapes.
