The Illusion of Plans (research)

This page is still being written. When complete it will document the research and production of The Illusion of Plans (Dorsch Gallery, Miami, Oct-Nov 2010). This work uses the now weed-like presence of the indigo plant as its material foundation and spirals out into expeditions to locate the plants in their Florida habitat, encounters with local botanists and horticultural bureaucracies, and the discovery of indigo’s troubling though not surprising connection to labor exploitation and the history of enslavement in the United States.
