Cara Despain’s works in challenge American frontier psychology, addressing the persistent and problematic romanticism of land acquisition, industrialization and empire building. Through rigorous site-specific research—often studying, casting and collecting material in the field–Despain visualizes the current geological epoch by revealing the consequences human manipulation has on ecological systems and the environment.

Using the midcentury Atomic Age as a lens to interpret the present looming threat of nuclear war, Despain reframes ready-mades and archives to underscore the irreversible consequences and to convey the latent psychic imprint and cultural memory left in the wake of weapons development and testing.
