Wet Networks features artifacts and commissioned projects from Geek Camp 2021: Neversink Never Ever. Taking place in July 2021 this was the first of artist Shu Lea Cheang’s annual “Geek Camp” convenings at CycleX an experimental farm and cultural center located in what is today known as the town of Andes New York. Invited curator Celine Wong Katzman chose artists whose practices resonated with the context of the watershed to take part in the camp at the site located just a few miles uphill from where the East Branch of the Delaware River feeds the Pepacton reservoir. Tecumseh Ceaser Nabil Hassein Melanie Hoff Christopher Lin Jan Mun and TJ Shin considered Cheang’s prompts to walk the trails consider the ebbs and flows of the reservoir and engage waves as carriers to recall buried bittersweet sentiments of displacement and relocation. They were joined by Erwin A. Karl mycologist and Evan T. Pritchard Founder of the Center for Algonquin Culture. Together their reflections and offerings illuminate the relationships between new technologies and traditional ways of knowing the challenges of collective care and how land and water shape and are shaped by one another and us.
