Not sure. Still playing with these ideas. Enjoying the process.

See past posts on built vs. natural elements in the landscape to get up to speed…

new picturesque

Thinking about this whole idea of nature/landscape in harmony with the built/manmade/industrial etc. Why not a new picturesque? Evidence of our presence here on earth as PART of the landscape.

There is a tendency to hide the human elements, to capture “nature” only. That seems like a lie.

rethinking landscape

This is the first in a series I’ve been thinking about playing with. I’m still working out the ideas in my head, but the basic idea is to explore the aesthetics of human elements in the natural landscape. Stay tuned for more work in this vein and please share your thoughts on the series as it develops.
