Winds Of Ancestry
Casey McGuire and Rae Goodwin rode their red rocking horses across this grand nation in 2016. They followed the Lewis and Clark Trail to Montana and stopped along the way to memorialize their foremothers and to acknowledge the fleeting winds of ancestry. This performance project and the resulting artifacts are created in collaboration or conversation with American history, its male heroes, their expeditions and their romanticized memorials. Questioning the nature of expedition, ownership and tourism, addressing cultural perceptions of bravery and the stereotypes around American pride.

The Great Moon Hoax
The Great Moon Hoax: Science and the Recreation of the Artificial merges science and art by exploring the complicated relationships between observation, representation, and understanding. This collaboration springs out of McGuire and Schoon’s individual research that address different aspects of the real, the artificial, and unattainable.
The images depicted in The Great Moon Hoax: Science and the Recreation of the Artificial were realized through the creation of three-dimensional sculptures for the purposes of making photographic prints. At times referencing lunar models, Apollo era images, and telescopic astrophotography, this body of work bridges a gap between historic and modern modes of scientific representation while re-contextualizing and bringing them into a contemporary vernacular.
