Fox River Derivatives 2010-2013

Fox River Derivatives is a series that contemplates our relationship with our natural resources. Using the theme “Water and Oil”, with consideration to the large BP Oil Spill in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010, the images were made as part of a collaborative experiment in art making around the given theme. I took to using the elements themselves in the image-making process, letting these substances become an important variable in the visual representation. Photographs are made along the Fox River which passes through both untouched rural areas and consumer-oriented suburban sprawl.
