Lost Prairie

LP is a research project dealing with the Texas Blackland Prairie, the most endangered large ecosystem in North America. Currently, less than .5% of the tallgrass ecosystem remains, largely existing in nature preserves in and around the area. This project includes a collection of material that I've gathered in my research and deals with various ways of processing this archive. One of the first issues I encountered when unraveling this imbroglio was how to show something which is not really there. Below are stills from a generative collaging program I wrote, which culls from an archive of screenshots and images gathered in North Texas, creating endless combinations of landscapes. This project is developing and looking for collaboration.
