The Mojave Project is an experimental transmedia documentary initiative by Kim Stringfellow exploring the physical, geological and cultural landscape of the Mojave Desert. The Mojave Project reconsiders and establishes multiple ways in which to interpret this unique and complex landscape, through association and connection of seemingly unrelated sites, themes, and subjects thus creating a speculative and immersive experience for its audience.

High & Dry is writer/historian Christopher Langley and photographer Osceola Refetoff's long-term collaboration exploring the deserts of the American West and the people who live there. The myth of West is charged with hope and ambition, yet the current reality reflects a patchwork of struggling communities, dreamers, dropouts, and military-industrial compounds. Balancing images and words with the personal and historical, High & Dry focuses on the remnants and the future of human activity across these vast open spaces -- territory that is becoming increasingly dominated my immense wind and solar arrays, and the controversial dynamics of critical resource allocation.
