Circa 1900’s

The central image was taken from a turn of the century Edward Curtis photo of a young man

from the village of Moenkopi on Third Mesa, Arizona. The image was found in the Library of

Congress archives. What initially garnered my interest was how striking the individual appeared

in the photograph. His attire was really an intriguing relic of the past causing me to wonder

about the young man’s life in his utilitarian dress up. With little information about the person’s

life, my thoughts began to wonder.

These relics from the past must be brought through a transformation and assimilated into the

qualities of today. Into the new possibilities, into the new vision of the universe. these must

be kept alive. Artist sole duty and function is the mythologization of the environment and the

world. the myths of the old must be regenerated if they’re going to have any impact.
