No More Shimmering Cowboys is a science fiction guided tour of a landscape that once was in an exploration of NYC’s High Line from a seemingly alien perspective. Leading a journey through the park, the tour guide muses on the strangeness of a past civilization eons after its inevitable ruin. In No More Shimmering Cowboys, the High Line becomes a theme park, parading the galactic tragic myth that was the American Dream. Rotting shimmering cowboys, incarcerated mothers, and imagined folk songs are part of an apocalyptic adventure depicting our present time.
