Coping with the Landscape

The geography of the America landscape is vast and unique, yet maintains the ability to be generic and ordinary at the same time. This is due to mechanisms that have worked to standardize not only human flow, but the flow of material across the landscape. The romantic agrarian countryside and the vast wildernesses that once accompanied it, has been reshaped by industrial design. The hinterland that remains is a human altered landscape imposing its ideology through monolithic structures on those who reside here. This series explores a single locality within the Montana landscape filled with superfund sites, distribution centers, and extraction zones, each byproducts of how economic modes of production have altered the land.
