In 1965 graduates from the University of Kansas wanted to live together free from the restrictions of mainstream life and so moved to a plot of land near Trinidad Colorado and built an experimental settlement they named ‘Drop City.’ They were called Droppers.
50 years on do the Droppers thoughts and ideals still have relevance? What might the idea of the ‘true life’ mean today? In what ways might we still be looking for the true life?
Collaborative artist’s Darren Ray and Andy Webster explore these questions in their project ‘Dropper’s.’
