Text by Grant Arnold. Interview by Paul Roth, Gaëlle Morel.

Over the past three decades, Mark Ruwedel (born 1954) has examined the intersections of representation, cultural memory and shifting perceptions of space. His work is an epic account of North American civilization, extending from topologies of urban architecture to large-scale projects such as The Ice Age and Westward the Course of Empire. Ruwedel represents landscape as a site where radically different scales of time intertwine. Picturing the earth as an enormous historical archive, he describes his work as "an inquiry into the histories, cultural and natural, of places that reveal the land as both a field of human endeavor and an agent of historical processes." Ruwedel spotlights traces of human activity—whether an ancient footpath in Death Valley or a rotting wooden trestle abandoned after the failure of the Vancouver, Victoria and Eastern Railroad—in relation to geographic and geological upheavals that have shaped the earth's surface.

Published by Steidl.
Text by Mark Ruwedel. Afterword by Mark Hayworth-Booth.

Message from the Exterior explores the ruins and remains of failed attempts to live in a harsh environment. Ruwedel's photographs address the collision of promise and reality in the American desert by depicting small, sometimes eccentric, abandoned houses that suggest the stories of anonymous individuals and their desire to create homes in the "wilderness," however transitory. Evoking both violence and tragedy, the houses and the land they occupy appear to be crime scenes. Volume One contains 88 photographs from Ruwedel's archive of "Desert Houses." Volume Two presents the related series "Dusk," in which 28 images of desert houses after sunset create subtle dark tones, paralleling the subject's social and geographic isolation.
