Atacama Lab Book
Incubo Atacama Lab began when the curatorial exchange organization Incubo invited Chris Taylor to bring the working methods of Land Arts of the American West to Chile. Land Arts is a field program that investigates the intersection of geomorphology and human construction beginning with the land and extending through the complex social and ecological processes that produce contemporary landscapes. The lab brought together a group of students and researchers from North and South America for a conference in Santiago and fieldwork in the Atacama Desert to examine earthworks and create contemporary responses to the industrial use of land over time, all of which is documented in this book. Includes texts in Spanish and English with a preface by Incubo, introductory essay by Chris Taylor, excerpted field notes by William L. Fox, and essays from Flora Vilches, Gonzalo Pedraza, Rodrigo Perez de Arce, Pilar Cereceda, and Andres Rivera. Illustrated with full color photography by Jorge Brantmayer, Blake Gordon, Barbara Palomino, and Chris Taylor. Design by Patricio Pozo and Andrea Iruretagoyena of Pozo Marcic Ensamble. Printed in Chile.
