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.
