“Created during the Chilkoot Trail Artist Residency, works from Out of Office deal with the social and cultural climate of a present-day wilderness experience. In 2014, we hiked and camped along the Chilkoot trail for fourteen days, from Dyea, Alaska to Bennett, British Columbia, making portraits of other backpackers with a 4×5” view camera. Originally used as a Tlingit First Nation trade route, the Chilkoot Trail saw major traffic and development during the 1898 Klondike Gold Rush. Despite its relatively remote location and the technical challenges of 19th Century photographic technology, this significant world event was well documented. While referring to this photographic archive, our images speak directly to the experience of life on the trail. Like the photographs of the Stampeders who travelled this route during the Klondike Gold Rush, these backpacker portraits provide an anthropological perspective; yet also speak to the role of the participant-observer, in this case, the artists in residence. The exhibition Out of Office also includes video and sound works that reveal the operational logistics of backpacking and working in a wilderness setting.”
