Landscapes embody both the infinitesimal and the infinite and are charged with contradictions and uncertainties that unfold over bewildering spans of time: creation and destruction, order and disorder, expansion and contraction, ancient and urgent. In the midst of this perpetual dynamism humans are notoriously bad at comprehending time and scale, and valuing our ancestral legacy. We are short-lived and short-sighted.
These, and related works, are explorations of new approaches to styles of architectural and scientific drawing where we reveal non-human, planetary time and scale and its impact on our environment, its nature, and its resources on which we depend.
