Train station Marfa Texas

From above the town of Marfa Texas appears as a discrete and well managed island adrift in a landscape of aridity, almost equidistant between LA and Chicago. Marfa presents itself unusually as a focal point for art-tourism. Shop windowed by artists such as Donald Judd, Ilya Kabakov, Claes Oldenburge and Richard Long but to name a few, Marfa unfolds an art scene across arid terrain branding itself as a contestant in the market of global wealth and power.

100 miles south of Marfa, straddling the Mexican-American border are pairs of towns known as ‘Texas Colonias’. Although these communities often display high Hispanic demography and poor infrastructural servicing, their architectures curiously incorporate a hybrid of Mexican concerns of both remembering homeland and projecting ambitions for identity through the aesthetics of the suburban American dream.

Studio 6’s project has been to mediate the suburban sleepiness of the American Dream, art-tourism and ideas if identity through place and industry.

The rail stations have incorporated industries such as, ‘rail-way cemetery’, bakery, dance and artist studios, newspaper industry, pool station.
