In this ongoing project, I collect photographic and drawn images from the rooftops, sidewalks, and alleys of Baltimore to build an alternative version of the city’s infrastructure. Each is treated as a new species-organisms which have been left to waste, to grow or to destroy those environments which bred them. Each species is coded by the form which created it; infrastructure color codes (red=electricity, blue=water, orange=communication, etc.) become the filters through which they are observed. Through drawing, animation, and digital rendering, they are studied for their potentials to be or become “real” creatures, structures, or forces of the present and the future urban landscape.
