Christine Howard Sandoval
Living between the high desert of Colorado and urban environment of New York City has placed the politics of fragile landscapes at the center of my artistic research. I approach broad subjects such as climate change and ecological sustainability with the personal lens of local narrative, stories that are told by individuals who have an intimate connection to land and place. My practice engages a documentary style of research that involves photography, local interviews, audio recordings, and collected objects, resulting in works that straddle the line between fact and fiction.
