This piece is derived from a series of photographs I took in the Peruvian Amazon along the Madre de Dios and Manu River, in French Guyana and in the tropical forests of Costa Rica. This work reflects the tension between the natural world and the transformation of nature into a commodified, industrial or synthetic landscape. The color and structure of this piece is informed by maps that are made from great distances such as satellite, infrared and LIDAR imaging, and the color maps that are imposed on the landscape when it is revisualized for scientific purposes.
