FALLOUT tells the story of the contradictory nature of cohabitation between nature and humans. I was curious about how our actions affect the ecosystems that birds need to rest, refuel,
and roost. By focusing on seemingly insignificant details, I attempted to ground the viewer in the landscape, making them more curious about their environments (both built and natural). I chose to utilize the cyanotype technique to create site-specific work that tells the story of migratory birds and human interference within the landscape.
I gathered litter from two locations along the northern Gulf coast. This litter, along with plants and photography form the subject matter of the cyanotypes. I then interjected my own human interference by screen printing data regarding bird migration and pathways directly onto the prints.
