Round 12, Base Camp by Massachusetts-based artist Leah Dyjak questions the structure and authority of maps as pre-constructed realities. By placing semi-transparent images in wooden markers, Base Camp imitates the language of visual signage and guides. Held up by flood prevention bags and illuminated by floodlights at night, the kiosks function as a meditation on water and collective fatigue in negotiating impending ecological collapse and mass displacement.

Cage Match Project Gallery lives in an industrial caged-trailer. Measured at 20’x8’x7’, this weathered and rusted container resides in a gravel parking lot in Austin, TX where it is under constant exposure to the elements and 24-hour public viewership. By fully embracing the caged-trailer as both literal and conceptual context, Cage Match Project purposefully stages a narrative of the artist-at- odds, with either history, space, or a work of art itself.
