Units: Transplanted


The units of chemical plants line the roads around the northern Gulf Coast of Texas. These units process thousand of barrels of various petroleum products everyday. Just as the residents of northern Florida drive by thick forests of pine trees, the residents of the northern Gulf Coast of Texas drive by vast fields of chemical processing units. These major landscape characteristics appear entirely normal to the people from each area. This project takes a landscape seen as normal to one group of people and transplants it into a new environment and population generally unfamiliar with such a view. I hope that those of you who have found their way to this blog will comment on this project, and share with the rest how you respond to this imagery.
