ghost town




gods country

ghost town adopts the language of an idyllic West (“god’s country”) onto home curtains. Pastoral images of sheep at sunset and satellite images of a migrant center are affixed onto opposite sides of the curtains, one for public eyes and one to be concealed. All of these pictures are of the same agricultural county west of Sacramento. In an American imagination, the bucolic is often glorified without any regard for the migrant farm workers in those same fields.
