Wendover Utah, located in the Great Basin at the edge of the Lake Bonneville salt flats, is the former site of a WWII Air Force Base where Colonel Tibbets and crew trained for the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombing missions. Long abandoned, the landscape of barracks, hangars and infrastructure of Wendover remain on the gypsum plains, slowly decaying in the harsh high desert environment.
These sumi ink drawings capture the angle of repose of deteriorating contemporary and historic domestic structures, as they transition from architecture to piles of sedimented material.
