Art in Nature

2003-2004 Moisture 2.  Team assembled by coordinator/artist Claude Willey .As a revolving collective of artists and researchers the Moisture Project has been developing over the last  three years into an annual research program centered around Harper Dry Lake, near Hinkley, California.

These structures, created by selected visual artists, serve as functional  sculptural objects, installed in relation to the ground, and the hydraulic matrix of the region.
