Constructing Zion (Augmented Reality version)
Land use decisions reflect doctrine in the Colorado City/Hildale Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (FLDS) sect community.

Throughout 2012, I traveled to Colorado City/Hildale documenting visual evidence of polygamy and fundamentalist Mormon doctrine in the landscape. I am creating a folio of images with personal essays about the fieldwork experience, and an epistolary photo essay book about their prophet, Warren Jeffs.
These images are from an augmented reality work, re-constructing the towns of Colorado City/Hildale for augmented reality experiences in other cities to allow audience access to a relatively closed community.
