Title The Colorado River beyond resource: habitat, home and restoration connecting generations moving downstream
Date 2012-08
Description The Colorado River Beyond Resource is a personal narrative that ties family to place. Growing up disconnected from Mormon convention, I asked myself what I am willing to live for. Finding the Colorado River I found that my lineage is connected beyond the faith that carried my ancestors to Utah by handcart. The river my Grandfather ran was a river strained as a resource for consumption, with the impounded waters changing the lines on the map. The river I run represents a landscape in flux. Comparing this pictures, words and maps to mine, I ask if may Grandfather's relationship to the land is a good model to follow. This work strives to combine art and science through stories and experience with the goal of influencing the human perspective on place rather than resource.
