Significant & Insignificant Mounds

This work brings together

photographs, experimental writing, and historical documents of both Native American Mounds as well as the industrial piles that continue to be produced in The American Bottom region.

Pairing text and image, and the so called meaning-filled and meaning-less subjects brings the process of signification to the surface, in order to complicate received value judgements that are so often brought to landscape photography and description.
