Land Unfolding examines the natural environment and the ways in which a photograph can function to represent place. The dichotomy of artificial and natural environments is explored through using photographs I made in real landscapes to construct new, illusive vistas and forms.
Landscape collages are created through a process of deconstructing and assembling multiple photographs to reconstruct another single view of the original landscape. The landscape piles are made from the deconstructed remains of the collages. The way in which these pile forms float in space portray a sense of loss, void, and skewed reality. The processes of deconstruction and reconstruction I employ speaks to our continually changing landscape as well as our attempt to preserve and piece it back together.
