The three installations in Drift represent the artist's response to Cameron’s Line, an ancient suture fault that traces the edge of the continental collision that initiated the formation of the Appalachian Mountains. Created specifically for the Aldrich, Joo worked to connect the museum interior with the surrounding landscape and its specific history. Cameron's Line runs north from New York City through Westchester County, passing through Ridgefield as it traverses Connecticut, then crossing Massachusetts into Vermont. It is defined by a belt of marble that includes the famous quarries of Vermont. The exhibition posed Cameron's Line as a linear experience through time and space.
