#12 (Pore) Undocumented Relationship (Eau Claire, WI to Willow St. Park, WI)
2009, found paper, Styrofoam, 29 circular pieces; 96¨ x 96¨ x 1.5¨
Wall hangings and field letters in this series emerged from a 4 week, cross-country collection-trip that began in Ann Arbor, MI and ended in Minneapolis, MN. Throughout his travels Campagna made collections of all the circular throwaway materials he found. He also wrote field letters to colleagues that were inspired by the people and land he encountered on foot (while walking was his primary mode of travel during the journey, he also moved over Lake Michigan on a ferry boat and hitched short and longer rides in vehicles at various points). Campagna continued to gather street debris (mostly found paper) on hundreds of collection walks in Minneapolis between 2007 - 2010. Materials collected during these walks were also used to build the wall hangings.
