Stringfellows artistic research DNA is well captured in her Desert X selected project, Jackrabbit Homestead: Tracing the Small Tract Act in the Southern California Landscape, 1938 – 2008. The project consists of a published book, an exhibit, a site-specific installation, and a downloadable car audio tour. Jackrabbit Homestead explores the stories of the Small Tract Act here in the Morongo Basin, not far from the Joshua Tree National Park. Accounts from this underrepresented piece of local history are now told through the voices of residents, historians, and area artists—many of whom reside in these reclaimed historic cabins. Stringfellow built and outfitted a 112-square-foot jackrabbit homestead inspired by the writings of Catherine Venn Peterson. Peterson wrote a six-part series detailing her mid-century Small Tract homesteading experience for Desert Magazine during the 1950s, when this highly popular “baby homestead” movement was just getting started. An audio soundscape brings Ms. Venn to life (voiced by Claire M. Campbell, in collaboration with Georgia-based musician/artist/author Jim White) as observers peer through windows and take a mental tour back in time.
