A Place Filled With Moving
Book Cover Design – 2017
A Place Filled With Moving is an academic text comparing cultural adaptation to drought conditions by two societies in the American West: the Puebloan cultures in Chaco Canyon around 1100 CE, and Dust Bowl farming communities in 1930 CE. In both case studies, the critical role of monumental architecture in resource redistribution and social organization emerged as a theme with the potential to unify the publication visually; however, while there is a rich archive of Dust Bowl photography in the public domain, there are few representations of 12th century Chacoan architecture not in ruins.
The archaeological record at Chaco is rich enough that I was able to instead reconstruct one of the largest settlements in modeling software, then 3d-print in white PLA filament. I took photographs of the resulting models for use in chapter heads, which complemented Dust Bowl imagery by Arthur Rothstein and Dorothea Lange.
