Abstract Landscape - The American Fabric

We bring a constant newness to an old landscape…on the plains, dry streams and shallow hills and valleys are subdivided with grid lines, crops are planted while other fields lay fallow, the colors of seasons, purpose, and time dye the patterns of the landscape while the nature of the land imposes its will on those who seek to control it, as evident in the underlying patterns left by furrows and wheels that echo the contours of the earth like the moire of fabric shimmering in sunlight…now in this place, we seek to harness the wind and we raise towers and lines above the plain, playing to the nature of airflow across that irregular landscape…another pattern for another time.
