  NEW MOUND CITY is a site-specific installation and photography project created in St Louis. Based on the original nickname of St Louis – “Mound City” - the project documents current sites where ancient Native American earthworks once sat, and creates contemporary 'mounds' in their place. Much like Cahokia, the well-preserved mound complex just across the Mississippi, St Louis had dozens of mounds and earthworks, essentially being a suburb of sorts. This Mississippian culture thrived along the river roughly 1000 years ago, with an eventual population of approximately 40,000 people - making it a larger city than London at the time. Yet, the Native Americans of this region first encountered by Europeans had only mythologies about these
structures, the people, and what happened to them. In contemporary St. Louis, this history is all but erased. Nowadays, not far from what was coined the "St Louis Mound Group" in 1809, there sits a tent city known as "Hopeville" - a new Mississippian culture along the great river. Atop the abandoned railroad depot nearby, I placed a tent, waiting for a new chief to claim reign over Monk's Mound West.
