Andrea Zittel: "Wagon Station Encampment" | ART21 "Exclusive"

Episode #214: This episode features Andrea Zittel’s "Wagon Station Encampment" (2004–ongoing)—a series of sleeping pods arranged throughout her property in Joshua Tree, California. Twice per year, when the desert climate is mild, Zittel allows artists, hikers, and researchers to stay in the Encampment, which is adjacent to her home and studio. Designed to facilitate social engagement as well as personal exploration, the Encampment is a blend of communal and private spaces. "Everybody has their desert fantasy; my particular fantasy was probably living on an alien landscape," says Zittel who describes the Encampment as reflecting a "sci-fi pioneer aesthetic."

Andrea Zittel transforms everything necessary for life—such as eating, sleeping, bathing, and socializing—into artful experiments in living. Zittel's A-Z West, a thirty-five acre residential and studio complex in the California high desert, is a testing ground for the artist's innovative sculptures, installations, and design projects.
