Work > Imagined Topographies of a Vanishing Wilderness

I spent the summer of 2021 creating imaginary topographies — blending together contour maps with my own wandering lines. While working on these topographic maps, I’ve been thinking about the vanishing wilderness. It is astonishing that only 23% of Earth’s wilderness is left. I've also been thinking about how as the wild spaces of the Earth shrink, the chaos of the pandemic grows. It is hard to believe we are still wandering in a wilderness of uncertainty about Covid 19.
