Artists: Hardland/Heartland

Hardland/Heartland (HL/HL) is an artists’ cooperative helmed by Eric Carlson, Aaron Anderson, and Crystal Quinn. HL/HL dredges through the excesses of consumer culture to assemble installations and performances that are less social commentary than conceptual scrapbook of our time. For “MILLIONS OF INNOCENT ACCIDENTS,” the artists have created a landscape and narrative in what they call “an ongoing saga of grandiose proportions.” Their inspiration comes from a mélange of influences: popular culture, current events, graffiti, vector graphics, Robert Rauschenberg’s “junk aesthetic,” and the narrative of contemporary science fiction.
