Roswell, New Mexico - Timeline

2007

Penrith Regional Art Gallery


This work is a visual presentation of all the research I have conducted about the New Mexican town of Roswell, USA, and attached to a timeline from 25,000 years ago until the present time. I visited Roswell in 2007 and collected anything I could find about the town that might shed some light onto why it has become a centre for alien conspiracy stories/history.

I think it is deeply significant that the 509th Bomb Group were stationed at the Walker Air Force Base at Roswell during the UFO crash incident. The 509th were responsible for the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Roswell, New Mexico - Timeline was included in the group exhibition The Visitors: The Australian response to aliens and UFOs, at Penrith Regional Art Gallery, 2007, curated by Anne Loxley and Regina Walter.
