CIRCULAR CROP FIELDS, NEBRASKA, AMERICA

40DKK595DKK

DECRIPTION:

The “Circular Crop Fields“ landscape is a landscape of the characteristic farmland dominating the midwest in the USA. The fields were measured out in 1 by 1 square meters in 1785, later nick-named “the Jefferson Grid“. The land is measured out in squares but the watering systems circular. This creates the extrardinary and dominant pattern best viewed from above. The earlier sea bottom can be seen as differences in terrain in a few of the squares. In the middle of the landscape a city can be seen and North of the city an airport shaped as the letter “k“.
Simultaniously scary and fascinating, the landscape shows how much impact mankind has had on the American landscape.

ABOUT THE PROJECT:

“Geosperical Landscapes” is a landscape project by Wild Things where planet Earth is viewed through the eyes of a satellite. The images show the impact human kind has on the landscapes surrounding us as well as the impact landscapes have on us. The landscapes also serve as a time capsule of how the ever-changing landscape and human structures looked at this time in history.
