DIPTOWN is a sprawling landscape installation of a town buried in sand where only building roofs stick out of the ground.
Diptown was once a simply a local tourist trap situated in a dip. Something covered the town up to the roofline, and the dip was transformed into flat desert. What’s happend? Here we leave space for interpretation. Everyone can invent their own legend. We only present an image, and we invite people to give it meaning and stories.
Most of Diptown is hidden beneath the surface, in both the physical and metaphorical senses. Like an iceberg, it projects only a few feet above the surface. It will be up to imagine what else exists below the surface. It will up to viewers to fill in the rest of the details.
Even if you cannot physically participate in the building of the project, you can participate metaphorically, inventing stories and “populating” Diptown virtually.
