SINKHOLE is a collective made up of artists Amanda Justice, Hogan Seidel, and Amber Vistein. The artists all hail from Florida (Hollywood, Ft. Lauderdale, and Wakulla County).
The story of the attempted draining and development Florida can be told through a series of failures dating back to Andrew Hamilton. The land in the Everglades, specifically, has been unsuccessfully drained, flooded, and irrigated dozens of times throughout the years. "Let's Look at Florida" shows the state's history and present simultaneously. Floridians are trying to claim land that isn't theirs: by draining and developing it, hunting it and settling it.
Despite all of the inhabitants' best efforts-- the land continues to swallow it’s own history.
