The Unseen Landscape

We live our lives surrounded by the infrastructure of our society. Still, most of us never see it, or, perhaps more properly, never really look at it. I am fascinated by the shapes and textures of this unseen landscape of technology. These enormous machines make our lives possible and yet the details of their functions often remain a mystery. Their metal and concrete geometries seemingly epitomize the domination and control of our environment but they exist along side of, and are juxtaposed with, elements of the organic world that can never be totally pushed aside.
