The Techatticup Mine, about 25 miles south of Las Vegas near the Colorado River, is an incredible place to explore. 100 years ago, it was the second most productive gold and silver mine in Nevada. It was populated by about 5,000 miners, who killed each other regularly. The nearest law was 300 miles away. During the summer, it gets up to around 120 F in the shade, so the miners would sleep in the mines to keep cool. It was a horrid life, but for many of them, better than the one they left.

The ghosts of these miners persist in the peeling paint on the sides of the old cars and trucks at the mine.

Jared Christopher Martin this reminds me of the beginnings of chinese calligraphy - the primitive scratching on bleached tortoise shells that eventually led to the hexagrams of the i Ching and other divinations. I mention this as a way of saying your art goes deep and exposes much treasure from secret places beneath the surface.
