From Sky to Ground: Fragmented Landscapes

From Sky to Ground: Fragmented Landscapes (2008-2009) is a series that deconstructs and combines images of many environments from around the world to create a newly abstracted landscape. Cut from images printed in National Geographic during the 1980s and early 1990s, the series fragments and abstracts these collage landscapes to destabilize the ideal picturesque. These collages also consider how the original photographed landscapes have likely transformed due to climate change, forestry, pollution, construction, and human interaction.
