About the Book
In the project "This Land is Your/My Land" artist Vaughn Bell offers "land for adoption" from the Cultivation Utility Vehicle (CUV). This performance project, which has taken place in locations across the country, creates a space for dialogue around questions of ownership, responsibility, and how we relate to the land. The book documents this participatory performance work and includes a DIY land adoption kit.
Vaughn Bell creates interactive art projects and immersive environments that deal with how we relate to our environment. She has exhibited her sculpture, installation, performance, video and public projects internationally. Most recently, Vaughn created a commission for Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art and another for the Edith Russ Site for New Media Art in Oldenburg, Germany. Her work has been featured in Artnews, Afterimage, and Arcade Journal, among others. Vaughn currently lives and works in Seattle.
