Florida Enchantments


Exhibited at Gallery X, Chicago, IL, 2012

Focusing on the affective, historical, and imagined topographies of the Florida Everglades, this show explores the poetics of archival materials, as well as relationships between moving and still images. Tourists’ photographs from the early 20th century, palms, and taxidermied alligators meet with repurposed film footage and souvenirs to meditate on ties between colonialism, development, and tourism in the south of Florida.
