Land Art of the 21st Century explores how innovation and creativity are contributing to the sustainable infrastructures that will bring human culture into harmony with the Earth’s natural systems. The canvas is Fly Ranch, Nevada. The medium is regenerative technology. The results are a glimpse into the near future of our sustainable landscapes.
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 over consumption of natural resources. Land Art of the 21st Century catalogues the responses to the 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.
