Completed in 2010, the city of Lincoln, transformed Antelope Creek, a drainage ditch, into a greenway featuring miles of bike path, public sculptures, and a series of fabricated rocks. Appearing to reference a Western landscape that does not exist in eastern Nebraska, I find the rocks halting, awkward - captivating. Sincere in their fakeness, yet particular in their realizing, the rocks remind me of the terrain of the South Dakota Badlands and act as a personal memory trigger, connecting a routine route to a remembered road trip.
Distance Learning is a merger of these places.
