Fritz Haeg works between his architecture and design practice, Fritz Haeg Studio, the happenings and gatherings of Sundown Salon, the ecology initiatives of Gardenlab, and his role as an educator. He has taught in architecture, design, and fine art programs at CalArts, Art Center College of Design, Parsons, and the University of Southern California. Haeg’s new on-going series of projects called Animal Estates debuted at the Whitney Biennial in 2008. His first book, Edible Estates: Attack on the Front Lawn, will be followed in fall 2008 by Sundown Salon 2001–2006 In Words and Pictures. Chip Lord is a media artist who works with video and photography. As a member of Ant Farm, he produced video art classics Media Burn, The Eternal Frame and Cadillac Ranch in Amarillo, Texas. His video work straddles documentary and experimental genres, often mixing the two, and has been shown widely at film and video festivals and in museums. He is a Professor in the Film and Digital Media Department at UC Santa Cruz, and lives in San Francisco.
