The Oxford dictionary defines Local Color as:
1The customs, manner of speech, dress, or other typical features of a place or period that contribute to its particular character.
2 The actual color of a thing in ordinary daylight, uninfluenced by the proximity of other colors.
for this project I collected the various colors found in the local landscape around Roswell New Mexico along with found objects that i left unaltered. I then inserted the earth into fabricated pedestals and displayed the objects as naturally occurring ready-mades atop gallery supplied pedestals.
