In 1848, after years of practicing medicine with herbal remedies learned from Indians and trading with the Indians on the Tombigbee, he moved to Texas. He purchased 1,828 acres of the fertile prairie land he had seen on his Texas visit thirteen years before. Lincecum, Sarah, and their surviving ten children, a number of grandchildren, and ten slaves arrived in Long Point on his fifty-fifth birthday.


Call for information:

I am planning a residency in partnership with Diverseworks in Houston, Texas for two weeks in 2011. I’ll be gathering research and conversation on a rather open-ended inquiry into
depleted oil fields,
pump jacks,
picturesque big and small oil operations,
migratory flyways,
invasive species,
effects of climate change,
what might spring to mind as elements of local ecosystems, intersections of nature/culture, what makes Texas Texas.

The more these things overlap in real space, the better but right now I am keeping this open.
Visual stunners welcome :)
Non-sequitors also welcome.

*Also, any movie references that feature classic “oil” landscapes would be appreciated -
