Mission Lake Project
In Mission Lake Project, Ledia Carroll will use a field line chalker to recreate the full perimeter of Lago Dolores, a former freshwater lake as part of her Mission Lake Project. This shoreline stretched from what is now South Van Ness to Guerrero and 15th to 20th Streets. Drawing the line in reference to maps from the 1800s, Carroll's chalk line allows the still visible ancient depression of the lake to become apparent to the eye. In conjunction with the re-created lake shoreline, Ledia Carroll presents a "lakeside" barbeque and perimeter bike race.
A related display of maps, drawings, and ephemera by Ledia Carroll and collaborators Ning Deng, Darcy Nuffer and Jamie White will be on display at Southern Exposure through December 20, 2006.
Locations include the perimeter of Mission Lake bordering South Van Ness to Guerrero and 15th to 20th Streets, Mission Park and Playground on Valencia Street between 19th and 20th Streets and several secret waterways to be announced.
