(Inspired by "Method Man" by Mark Bradford, 2004)
Our final interpretation took into account the â€˜levelâ€™ ground that is the black background of Bradfordâ€™s work and took into account the collage art form and what that means in a landscape context â€“ a post-industrial site that has been re-proposed. There are layers beneath the ground plane â€“ pollution inside the soil from previous uses. Other layers are exposed for the purposes of extraction â€“ an abandoned mining condition being re-inhabited by vegetation, the compaction left from the past railroad uses, and the footprint and skeletons of buildings that once defined the manufacturing/transportation uses. Materials: aluminum screen, design board, nails, foam core, plywood.
