The Resource Exhaustion Crisis Evacuation Safety Shelter

September 14, 2010

Christopher Jobson







Artist Chad Person has spent years constructing, fortifying, and concealing a safety shelter (dubbed RECESS) that will allow him to survive the collapse of civilization. He has constructed weapons and surveillance systems, detailed resource maps, as well as animal traps, solar ovens, and the general acquisition of survival skills.

RECESS began 2 years ago when I made my home in the southwest United States. Like much of the West, our reliance on the continuous import of vital resources (food, water, medical supplies) is unsustainable and untenable. Crisis preparedness is vital, and RECESS is my answer. It is a re-model, an insurance policy, an experiment, a test of personal mettle, and an obsession. Survival is everything.
