Fracture is a collection of photo and video collage, focused on the mystical nature of landscape with an element of the impact humans have on it. I find patterns within the scenery and emphasize it through structural manipulation of the imagery. I utilize geometric obstruction to interrupt the landscapes, creating a sense of the sublime in conflict with human-made order. I try to find the intersection of the imperceptible forces within nature and the human tendency to try to control it. I cut up, puncture, sew into and rearrange visual elements to create a new environment. Source material was either generated while visiting nature preserves around the world or created from found slides and photographs. I fear that the privilege of enjoying uninterrupted landscapes is one that may not exist one day.

The soundtrack to the video Obfuscation is manipulated echolocation sounds of bats, crickets and katydids mixed with synth tracks.
