Campo Research Studio
Mario Marzán + Roxana Pérez Méndez
As our personal interest in hiking, trekking, and ecocriticism have grown, Roxana Pérez-Méndez and I (Mario Marzán) are starting a new artistic collaboration that brings together our joint interest in the pedestrian, peripatetic and pedantic experience of the landscape- mirroring our collaboration on a new study abroad program that takes students through the Camino de Santiago while producing art along the way. We want to embark on a body of work based and produced while on a series of long distance hikes that enables us to generate visual, performative and written notation, correspondence, and further historical research. In this new context, the landscape will become our studio and the length of the walk our site.
