R is for Ruin


Field Study Proposal

On this one month long feild study titled R is for Ruins, I will be taking an in depth look into what it means to be in a state of ruin or be in ruinicity. This means that I will be taking a good hard look at not only our conventional concept of ruins but I will be looking at society, culture, art, and self as a ruin or in the process of being in ruins. I plan to look at multiple texts but two titles that will be following me will be the book called Urban Wildscapes and another titled Industrial Ruins. I plan to incorporate poetry and artistic mediums in order to convey the ruination of Grays Harbor County, with a few situations or in depth looks into similar cases of ruination.

I am a crafty and creative woman who is interested in poetry, art, long walks on beaches, and poking dead things on beaches with a stick. I have in recent years graduated from The Evergreen State College, got married, and am leading a fairly productive life outside in the world I love. It isn't always rainbows and butterflies but it's a good life, and I will keep creating things for as long as I live.
