I’m super excited about my Wagon Station Encampment visit this October – an experience of a life time!
Andrea Zittel’s “Wagon Station Encampment” (2004–ongoing)—a series of sleeping pods arranged throughout her property in Joshua Tree, California. Twice a year, Zittel allows artists, hikers, and researchers to stay in the Encampment, which is adjacent to her home and studio. Designed to facilitate social engagement as well as personal exploration, the Encampment is a blend of communal and private spaces. “Everybody has their desert fantasy; my particular fantasy was probably living on an alien landscape,” says Zittel who describes the Encampment as reflecting a “sci-fi pioneer aesthetic.”
