Experiments Taken For Granted
These mini-series are documentations of environmental deformities I have witnessed. "Toxic Waters" is a collection of U.S. waterways impacted by human activity. "Tree Sacrifices" is a series of rubbings of cut down trees, documenting why they were cut. "Stripper Pits" is a series of screen captures documenting the landscape patterns made by surface or strip mining. These locations have become recreational destinations as well as dump sights for crimes.
