DESCRIPTION

Campion made a large book (4′ x 3′) of illustrated man-hole covers (with Paul Wintle) entitled Ground Zero on the Road to Xibalba. The book is taken from charcoal rubbings of covers from an old street in Austin, Tx. The images were arranged and sometimes deranged with inks, oils, metal flakes, etc to tell the story of the underworld (the repressed) of our modern day society. The book was presented as part of his Art Installation: Floodstage at the Memory Theatre in Austin and at Texas A and M, College Station.

You can look at the stills of the book, or a slide show, or watch Campion's lecture presentation of the book given at the College of Environmental Design at UC Berkeley by going to
