Coal and Star: our super condensed objects. They differentiate through magnitudes of scale and distance, by the logistics of the vocations they produce. The space of the Miner is understood with hands, sweat, by the bodily threat of collapse. The Astronomer’s universe unfolds through abstract mathematical models, observation and analysis from a distance. Miner and Astronomer meet here, in The Field, on the page, the planar division between above and below. They compare notes, weigh material against model, hand against eye, word against deed.

Zerek Kempf and Joe Winter met in 2003 in the Visual Arts Program at The University of California, San Diego. In 2006, they attended the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, traveling to mines and observatories soon thereafter. They are based in New York City.
