Raised in Wyoming, a place that has been described by some as bleak, harsh, empty and even ugly, Rebecca Weed took the horizon for granted while growing up. “A definitive line where the land overlapped the sky was always in view. When I travel to locations that are filled with trees, buildings or people that obscure our sense of space and direction, I feel claustrophobic. Within this landscape, within America, within an ever-accelerating world, there is a lack of heroism. There is a lack of signposts that mark our individual time. There is a lack of the archetype, the myth, the importance of presence. These are human constructs, and they may be evolving into other manifestations. They may be no longer useful. They may be right in front of me. Wherever or whatever they are I feel the necessity to mark my time; to celebrate a bit, or mourn, to fall in love.
