Description

In order to make the information accessible to many audiences, the website borrows the vernacular language and imagery of the National Park System.

The project "Camp La Jolla Military Park" involved creating a data collection system for investigating relationships of power within the Military Academic Industrial Complex in Southern California.

As a case study, I researched the historical, geographic, and economic ties between the University of California, San Diego, regional defense contractors, and the U.S. Military. In order to make the information accessible to many audiences I borrowed the vernacular language and imagery of the National Park System, and announced that a national park had been founded to appreciate the ongoing military history of the area. During an exhibition in April 2008 I converted a gallery space into a temporary museum, and distributed information about the park via a brochure, a website, and daily golf cart tours.
