Interdisciplinary artist Jonas Becker explores the intersection of land, identity, and politics. His recent projects reflect on extraction as a metaphor for broader socioeconomic issues. In this work in progress, Becker builds on such land-based metaphors to engage participants in a multi-sensory exploration of the “new normal.”
