Land Use was composed of a group of large scale paintings and mixed media objects installed in two public school facilities in 1997 and 1998: the Frostburg University Performing Arts Center; and the Flintstone School auditorium. The installations included video clips from discussions with the elementary and high school students about local land use issues.
The sculptures are little more than maquettes for large scale totem-like objects which have yet to be built. Based loosely on the function and form of a scarecrow, these kinetic objects were drawings about the condition of workers and farmers within industrial agriculture. The work was done simultaneous with the Land Use installations in 1997 and 1998.
