Adrianne Wortzel will be an artist-in-residence at Wildacres Retreat in Little Switzerland, North Carolina

Wortzel will situate and photograph specimens for her project “EX SITU: Colony Relocation for Electronic Detritus.” The project is the creation of an “album” of electronic elements situated as surviving artifacts in the natural landscape with a text describing their origin, usage, eventual pervasiveness and finally, obsolescence. The objects will be posed “ex situ” as the detritus of obsolescent technologies as “endangered” species of technology placed in the natural environment in order to foster their survival, at least in the realm of nostalgic dioramas.

The Wildacres Residency Program began in 1999 and over the past fifteen years has hosted approximately 400 writers, artists, and musicians.
