FIELD RESEARCH 2012 - 2016

in collaboration with Ian Quate as GRNASFCK

Over the last seven years I’ve conducted collaborative fieldwork in areas of the United States where technology, design, and geology collide, from the sinkholes in the Disney-designed town of Celebration, Florida to the Bakken oil fields of North Dakota.  Our research looks at landscapes, and positions technology as a new form of geomorphology. Just as tectonic plates and glaciers rearrange the physical material of the earth, industrial and digital tools – with its affective entourage of climate change, environmental monitoring, resource extraction, etc - both reformats landscapes and imbues them with a new subjective desire.
