The C5 Landscape Initiative
San Francisco Camerawork
May 24 - June 25, 2005
In its multiple manifestations, The C5 Landscape Initiative is positioned in the overlapping zones of conceptual, performance, and land art, as well as research, business, and exploratory adventure, raising questions about the contexts in which we construct meaning and about the status of exploration in art itself.
Christiane Paul - adjunct curator of new media arts at the Whitney Museum of American Art
With the support of cutting-edge technology and equally cutting-edge curator Marisa Olson, C5 has created a show with the audacity of an Everest summit and the meditative powers of a long walk in the woods.
Alison Bing - SF Gate, June 9, 2005
The C5 Landscape Initiative, a 5 year project, under development since 2001, debuted at San Francisco Camerawork in May, 2005. During the initial three year development timeframe of the Landscape Initiative, expeditions were undertaken across the globe; as C5 summited Mt. Shasta and Mt. Fuji, traveled the length of the Great Wall of China, and undertook a 13,000 mile motorcycle journey around the continental United States. In conjunction with the SF Camerawork exhibition, The C5 GPS Media Player, was the featured project on the Whitney Museum's Net art portal: Artport, for June/July, 2005.
