Flip Cassidy, artist. East Jesus, Slab City, Salton Sea, California.
East Jesus gets it’s name from a slang term that was used in the Midwest back in the day where a person would describe really off the beaten path as being East Jesus. It lays at the outskirts of Slab City, the last free place in America, a campsite without electricity or running water where live a community of people who escape modern society. Many are destitute. Others just don’t want to be found.
According to their website:
Together, the inhabitants of East Jesus provide a refuge for artists, musicians, survivalists, writers, scientists, laymen and other wandering geniuses.
