I am not generally interested in landscape as documentation - obviously, that genre is very well trodden. Instead I wish to use the landscape (& particularly the American landscape) to dive into the foggy earth of consciousness. I want to use the landscape as a familiar yet foreign experience to explore these ideas of how our environments shape who we are on a psychic level. This is especially of importance in 2017 as the changes happening in America are so divisive, and while progress goes in and out like a social tide pulled by political reality stars, the landscape remains as an ideological mass that defines the nostalgia of what America used to be and what it can be still.
