Dreaming of Flying: Indian Summer

Dreaming of Flying: Indian Summer. Mixed media. 36 x 48 in. 2016.

In the series Dreaming of Flying, Tracy Steen and Tom Lincoln explore dreams about flying, invoking intertwined images of American and family history.

This piece examines Cannonsville, NY, a valley town in the Catskills that was flooded in the 1960s to become a reservoir for drinking water for New York City. The reservoir is now also a preserve for Bald Eagles. The piece includes images from the Pete Seeger-soundtracked film Indian Summer, which depicts the destruction of Cannonsville; from historical sites in New York state, including Auburn, Deposit, and New York City; and from a papered-over ledger from the Adams family’s now-destroyed general store.
