    terra nullis; delinquent vernacular
    los angeles CALIFORNIA

    suckerPUNCH: describe your project.

    clark THENHAUS: terra nullis means ‘no man’s land’ in latin.  it was
    used by 18th century european colonists who took land from australian
    aborigines who saw no evidence of settlement, such as agricultural or
    religious structures. the european colonists concluded that the native
    people did not ‘own’ the land, merely roamed it.

    this is echoed in american history as on april 22, 1889 (now celebrated as earth day) the government opened indian land in oklahoma to a land grab in which settlers
    could seize indian land for agricultural development. terra nullis exists
    at the margins of society operating outside of everyday infrastructural
    models. it is here where a new vernacular emerges… a delinquent
    vernacular emerging a nebulous internal set of rules, orders, trade
    routes, and rogue tectonics. alien marlboro, a schizophrenic
    anthropologist, and marmalade plumb, a rare plant preservationist from the
    gold rush era are 2 of 5 historically fictional characters whose evolution
    of delinquent vernaculars at the margins of the mainstream along vacant
    agrarian lands are catalogued through drawing.
