Coming from a place that city folks might find remote has led to some polarizing conversations. I got asked as a kid if I rode my horse to school every day, or if we had running water. On the other side of the spectrum, until I moved to the city I never thought it was odd that most people I knew had an animal mounted to living room wall. Moving from place to place gave me an outsiders perspective. I think my upbringing made me more flexible as a maker as well as more susceptible to making work about what I’m encountering in the moment, much like how Western Vestige or This is to tell you we’re out in the Old West was made.
