Transformation of the space from human activities is my main interest in this project. The landscape, which reflects vast amounts of resource extraction to meet high demand of human consumption, results in complete changes of the landscape.
Additionally, I am also interested in capturing traces of changes in space to show that whilst humans develop urban areas, they do not merely shape a landscape of a city, they also change the face of the resources landscape. Finally, the work is exhibited through the large scale format for visual impact as well as a renewed perception.
