We’ll be back later this March with more news about our next installation, a collection of photo-based works informed in part by the writings of Victorian proto-ecologist (and erotophobe?) John Ruskin. Fresh lichen prints are making their way to Marfa from Color Wheel Digital in Baltimore, destined for the expanding plant-mind meditation zone already in progress at Etherington Art.

“Inter-Dimensional Music,” the New Age and earth-psych show that I host with David Hollander, floats through the Far West Texas air every Sunday night at 93.5 FM from 9-11pm (CST), and is often available streaming live online at marfapublicradio.org.

The above image is from the Bottomless Lakes, a series of desert cenotes near Roswell, New Mexico.

In April of 2009 I traveled to Terlingua, a remote border settlement in the Chihuahuan Desert of Far West Texas, to spend time with the DIY homesteaders and off-the-grid outsiders who were getting down together for the first annual Terlingua Green Scene. I’m in the process of publishing my account of the wild times I had there in Arthur Magazine.

Read the first installment, “No Winners, Only Survivors,” at the Arthur Magazine website. More chapters are on their way, so stay tuned.

For more of my reporting and photography about the Marfa “drug blimp” and other paranoid visions from this unique region of the Lone Star state, check out “Dread Zeppelins: Letter from West Texas,” also in Arthur Magazine.
