Statement

Cameron Hockenson is an artist and educator who has taught digital photography, installation arts, and cultural history in the Cycladic Islands since 2004. Hockenson holds a bachelor's in Landscape Architecture from California Polytechnic State University with a concentration in Environmental Design, and a Masters of Fine Art from the San Francisco Art Institute. He is concerned with the vernacular landscape, and issues of biocultural diversity.  His sculptures and site-specific installations address place as an outgrowth of dwelling, collecting, and memory. Way-marking paths and trails with constructions fashioned of organic and mass-produced detritus become a negotiation between ‘progress’ and ‘being.’ He documents these walks and interventions with drawings and photographs, providing an idiosyncratic narrative of his experience. His art has been exhibited in a wide range of contexts including the San Francisco Arts Commission Gallery, and recent international art exhibitions like Arte Sella, in Val di Sella Italy. In 2009 Hockenson created public installations in Kamiyama, Japan aimed at rejuvenating depopulated communities in Shikoku. In 2010 he was an artist Fellow at the Camargo Foundation where he fabricated ruins and artifacts in the quarries of the Calanques, derived from research on Neolithic, ancient, and modern cultures in the French Mediterranean. Hockenson has recently given presentations on the parallels between creative practices in land art and archaeological methods of reconstruction at the Aix-Marseille Institute for Advanced Study.
