"The Processed Land: Sprawl and Reclamation"

Friday, March 27 - 3:00PM to 3:45PM
Venetian Room

This presentation extends the focus on New Topographics and
the "altered landscape" to explore future stages of interaction
between image manipulation and the physical environment.
Along with image processing and new media, sprawl has led to
new understandings of land-use and may be key in developing
critical models of land reclamation and reclamation art. Problematic
landscape work leading up to Alan Berger's "drosscapes," will
suggest a range of far-reaching questions, e.g., whether sprawl
itself and its aesthetics might be in need of reclamation as outlying
urban areas become like mining sites in the West, exhausted
terrains of dead-end growth.
