Untitled (Atkinson Island)

[2023] Untitled (Atkinson Island)

Atkinson Island is a uninhabited Island in the Houston Ship Channel that was once owned by Conoco, but was “donated” to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department in the 80s. Very little information is found online or in libraries about the island or its history, which I found to be both mysterious and questionable. Using tulle and black marks to depict the missing information, I tired to piece together the story of this mysterious island.
