[ISEA2014] Artists Statement: Julia Townsend & Lincoln Adams – GRIT FROM THE PALM

Artists Statement

This is an 18-line poem that will be projected onto a sand dune (if outdoors), or on a wall (if indoors), with accompanying short video(s) adjacent (or nearby).

  • Lincoln Adams is a carpenter/builder and fire safety inspector, and Julia Townsend is a community-minded artist and passionate educator. They turned The Peanut Factory, a 1932 peanut processing mill, that was donated to Preservation North Carolina in 2010, into a residency venue for emerging and professional contemporary artists, writers, and other creative individuals. They have been planning and constructing the site between long stints in Dubai.
