partially erased western postcards
3.5" x 5" - 4" x 6"

Embracing the tradition of "damnatio memoriae,” the Erasurescapes series aims to combat the collective memory stored within historic western postcards. These images reflect a cultural understanding of an environment at odds with urban life: "the rural," "the west," or "wilderness"... instances of the American other. In an iconoclastic process of tedious erosion, all signs of human intervention and interference have been removed from these images, thereby restoring the memory of these landscapes to their pre-anthropocene status.
