"Cultural researchers Sue Mark and Bruce Douglas, aka marksearch, recently completed a month-long adventure in the Black Belt region of the rural South.† Through an unconventional form of ecotourism, marksearch endeavored to explore the local history, current concerns, and sense of community of the residents of one small city:† York (population:† 3,000).† As the CAlabama Peddlers, marksearch, on tandem bike, covered over two hundred miles in Sumter County, Alabama.† GPS routes, video, images and text of this amazing journey can all be found on their site.

marksearch is an independent artistic cultural research team that has collaborated on community-based art projects since 2000. Their mission is to create interactive projects that invite people to reflect upon their local communities, consider healthy alternatives to driving, and increase awareness of the natural environment within the urban fabric."
