Potential Wilderness


Potential Wilderness is the legislative definition of Point Reyes National Seashore, a large starfleet-shaped piece of land an hour northwest of San Francisco. It is neither park nor private property, due to decades of messy public vs. private land ownership following the uptake in violent land grabs from the Coastal Miwoks, and other tribes nationally, during the Gold Rush era.

In May 2019, I received the Marcus Undergraduate Research Fellowship award to continue my exploration into this place and its ideas under the mentorship of Sean McFarland. Here will exist a digital archive of the work, my writings, and some of my research. The presentation of these works are a work in progress, and are a means of me working out my thoughts while others can watch along the way.
