Explore Landscape



Landscapes are dynamic, shaped by ongoing physical, biological, social, and spiritual processes: motion, growth, and exchange; birth, death, and decay; communication, building, learning; dreaming and worship.

Processes connect the organic and inorganic, the animate and inamimate, the physical world and the organisms that inhabibit it.

Processes create patterns, link scales of space and time: from the intimate scale of touch to to the vast scale of continents and planets, from moments to millennia. Patterns of landscape's material, shape, and structure are clues to ongoing processes and to processes which ceased long ago.

Landscape context is a place where processes happen, a setting of dynamic relationships, a weaving together of many patterns
