A collaborative exploration of land-based art in New Mexico





smudge studio


Smudge Studio designed, produced and is web hosting information, documentation, and creative responses to LAND/ART on their website and blog: www.smudgestudio.org and blog: www.smudgestudio.blogspot.com. Their project for LAND/ART joins blogging with the design and production of web exhibitions, and activates a hybrid voice that cross-pollinates journalism, art, design, education, and media. smudge studio aims to be a generative resource and outlet for artists, museum and art educators, environmental designers, and the general public.

"Our blog project sifts, bridges, maps and cross-pollinates networks among the expanding field of artists + environments. We offer the site as a generative media resource for a growing network of contemporary artists, designers, urban planners, researchers, and scientists variously referred to as 'New Land Arts', 'Artists/Designers + Environments', or 'land use interpretation'."

Smudge Studio's participation is supported in part by a grant from the University of New Mexico College of Fine Arts. Their new media initiative takes the form of an ongoing experiment in using art to expand the uses of media, and media to expand the networks among artists + environments.
