36 PEAKS is a cumulative video project and performance installation that re-uses the detritus of the built environment to construct brief cinematic moments of iconic vastness. Working site-specifically and prioritizing the audience experience, the live event investigates our relationship to scale, to awe and beauty, to human ecological impact, and explores cycles of transformation, elevation, and corruption.
