    David Gardner: Marking Our Place in the World

    For David Gardner, the impetus for this project and exhibit came from a tree—festooned with shoes—beside U.S. Highway 50 in Nevada. After photographing it he started digging through his car for his own piece of footwear that he could add—and then he stopped, not really understanding why he’d experienced that odd impulse. He is interested in that impulse and its result as applied to the landscape.

    For David Gardner, the impetus for this project and exhibit came from a tree—festooned with shoes—beside U.S. Highway 50 in Nevada. After photographing it he started digging through his car for his own piece of footwear that he could add—and then he stopped, not really understanding why he’d experienced that odd impulse. He is interested in that impulse and its result as applied to the landscape.

    Gardner says: “As humans we must communicate--it is what we do best. We seem hardwired from birth to do this via a complicated system using signs and symbols. But removed from our normal settings and tools, how do we compensate? Why are we compelled to ‘leave our mark’ upon landscape, whether or not others understand its meaning or semiology?”

    In Gardner’s color photographic investigation of this idea, the marks themselves are more relevant to him than the particular landscape they inhabit. He is also interested in how our interventions impact the landscape, both natural and urban, in ways that are permanent as well as changed by time and nature. “I explore themes of history, language and communication, while observing the dynamic of personal and group expression as it plays out on the landscape.”
