The site,, includes landscapes ranging from iceland's lava fields, glaciers and geysers to Mexico and California's deserts. Also featured here are images that track hours of time and compress them into a single image, showing light in an previously unseen manner. Lastly, there are works that look at the repeated human form as an architectonic element to contribute to placemaking.
