What is resilience? Resilience is adapting to change, while retaining its basic function and structure.
How is Mojaveland a resilience project? Mojaveland is an interactive art center in the High Desert of California that uses sports to reach multigenerational families. The property that Mojaveland inhabits was abandoned for 30 years, but once thrived as a homestead, with trees and trout ponds in the middle of the Mojave. I am trying to honor the original owner, who had a sense of adventure and mischief, while offering the community a place to play and experiment with art.
Currently, Mojaveland’s artist-designed miniature golf course has 13 holes, with other art installations dotting the property. Eventually I hope to bring water and solar power to the plot, and restore the old homestead.
Part of Mojaveland’s mission is to reuse and restore as much as possible, encouraging growth of the desert flora and fauna. visit: www.mojaveland.com
