I walked, I walk through the conurbated city to retrace his steps, to document the ecology of relationships that sustains this place. Time passed—time regained. And now, I construct a landscape through layers of images from the archive. The landscape is no longer that of Frederic Church, but a decentralized picture with no vast depth of field, no clarity. It is not a postcard, it is an amalgamating message.
