Broken Bow

The landscape of the midwest is often full of broad expanses of equally spaced geometric shapes that are the legacy of the planned westward expansion of our country. The ordered divisions of land can be seen in the square grids of farms and towns…But then we get to the edges…the place where order meets the will of a living planet. Northwest of Broken Bow, Nebraska, the flat terrain gives way to the wrinkled crust of earth as we step toward the Rockies. Though invisible in places where the irregular terrain dominates, the grid continues and each level plane is cultivated following its plan. This intermingling of chaos and order creates an abstract landscape that, when combined with textures of weather systems, takes on a view of something out of this world.
