Scenes From Jesusland
“Scenes from Jesusland documents the spectacle of a Christian theme
park located in Orlando, Florida. Humor and irony are combined within a documentary approach to examine hyperreality and the appropriation of Bible narratives. I focus on the theatrical setting, which includes a replica of ancient Jerusalem, biblical exhibits and tourist interactions with the simulated environment. These images examine the curious crossroad of religion with tourism and commodity culture.
This project started in 2006 when I purchased a Jerusalem Gold Pass for $100, granting free year round admission to the Holy Land Experience located across from the Mall of Millennia in Orlando, Florida. This work was first featured during FotoWeekDC in November 2008 at Heineman Myers Contemporary Art in Bethesda, Maryland and Orlando Museum of Art in May 2010.”
