Hinterculture reveals the outlying history, art, technology and business of the high desert through mining sites for social, cultural and aesthetic meaning. We document hidden stories, natural and manufactured, to expand perception and understanding—sharing our discoveries and revealing a new public image of the desert, via collaborations and events, broadcasts and social media.

Illegal Dumping PSA Broadcast in the AV

The final product of DEHSART's first AVIDTF grant, the illegal dumping public service video aired on the city of Palmdale's local access channel 27 and featured the 2013 grant cycle's winning CTA - REPORT.

Sonic Trash

Created for an education presentation about Illegal Dumping, and inspired by Alyce Santoro's Sonic Fabric made of re-purposed cassette tape, Karyl Newman collected a couple of e-waste-d tape players (thanks Jason at the Lancaster HHW recycling center!) and hacked the play heads. We find cassettes and VHS media dumped in the desert all the time. An illegal dumping bumper sticker holds the magnetic tape in place while scratching the playhead.
