Anne Elizabeth Moore and Tim Schwartz spent the week of March 23, 2015 in the Southern California desert inaugurating the STAT-US residency program. Choosing to work in Slab City and Joshua Tree, the two drafted a series of speculative survival manuals inspired by their surroundings. Collectively entitled Modern Survival, the book series will explore best practices for navigating potential biological, technological, ecological, and governmental futures, and interrogate the drive to publish despite disaster. For the residency, the two built a collection of historic survival manuals which will stay in the STAT-US trailer as reference material for future projects and residencies.
