multi-media presentation of

'FISHING the DESERT'

THE POETRY AND PHOTOGRAPHY OF

BROOKS ROBARDS and SIEGFRIED HALUS

Brooks Robards, author of fourteen books, four of which are poetry,  first visited Santa Fe in 1995. Returning annually, she has drawn inspiration for her writing from the New Mexico landscape. The poems in “Fishing the Desert” come from a collection she has been working on for eight years. Her friendship with Santa Fe-based photographer Siegfried Halus, which began in Connecticut in 1968, was renewed in 2008 when they reunited in Santa Fe. They decided to collaborate, and the two first presented their work together at Santa Fe’s former A Gallery in 2013.

They have joined together to create a work that celebrates the world that is New Mexico.

AMY FUSSELMAN

SAVAGE PARK:
A Meditation on Play, Space, and Risk for Americans Who Are Nervous, Distracted and Afraid to Die


On a visit to Tokyo with her family, Fusselman stumbles on Hanegi playpark, where children are sawing wood, hammering nails, stringing hammocks to trees, building open fires. When she returns to New York, her conceptions of space, risk, and fear are completely changed. Fusselman invites us along on her tightrope-walking expeditions with Philippe Petit and late night adventures with the Tokyo park-workers, showing that when we deprive ourselves, and our children, of the experience of taking risks in space, we make them less safe, not more so.

Savage Park is a fresh, poetic reconsideration of behaviors in our culture that — in the guise of protecting us — make us numb and encourage us to sleepwalk.

AMY FUSSELMAN is the author of The Pharmacist’’s Mate and 8. As “Dr.” Fusselman, she writes the “Family Practice” parenting column for McSweeney’s Internet Tendency. Her work has also appeared in the New York Times Magazine, Ms., Hairpin, and ARTnews.
