DeMille’s 1923 Ten Commandments movie set, and a reimaging of Edward Weston’s modernist dune photographs.

Contributing essays by yak titʸu titʸu yak tiłhini Northern Chumash Tribal Chair Mona Olivas Tucker with her son Matthew Goldman, and by Hanna Rose Shell, Associate Professor of Critical and Curatorial studies, and Director of the Stan Brakhage Center for Media Arts in Boulder, Colorado.
