Julia Barbosa Landois

Julia Barbosa Landoisis a performance, installation, and video artist. Her work for Luminaria took the form of a two-dimensional walking meditation labyrinth made out of repurposed materials found in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey and based on suburban expansion in Texas metro areas. The work was inspired by similar patterns foundacross the world, from prehistoric petroglyphs in modern-day California to the floor of Chartres Cathedral. Visitors were invited to contemplate effects of the suburban lifestyle while slowly traversing on foot a map made possible solely by the culture of cars. Placement of this piece in the 19th century Carriage House in Hemisfair Park provided a further point of historical contrast and begged questions about the future of San Antonio’s footprint.
