This collection of drawings demonstrates the impact of anomalies in systems over human and geological scales of time. The visual language of the drawings references growth patterns and material interactions in nature, along with data representations such as bathymetry models which interpret varying depths in rivers, lakes, and oceans. The Mississippi River is constantly moving, shifting large volumes of sediment seasonally. This movement–a longing to exist as it once did, inscribing itself into and across the landscape–expresses itself in the continual reshaping of its submerged profile and the continual force it applies to its bounding levee system.
