What can be learned from land?

FIELD INQUIRY

ongoing

Nina leads curated excursions to reveal hidden histories within the landscape. Ranging from one hour to one month, these tours have scrutinized university campuses, oil refineries, wilderness areas, and toxic dumps, and created a platform for groups to critically read and respond to place. Often incorporating poetry and historic texts, and building on Nina’s personal research and exploration, these tours have resulted in books, exhibitions, poems, documentaries, and more.
