5 Hours Deep Wrap Up. Today concludes both my road trip around central Maine and my guest curation of the American Guide IG. I’m grateful to Erin Chapman and Tom McNamara of @americanguide for lending me the keys. Its always nice to have a motivation to consider the experience of place and share it with others. As always I recommend folks check out theamericanguide.org for a collective look at America’s cultural landscape; part travel, part documentary, all American. Follow @americanguide

Sunset on Kingsbury Pond, Kingsbury, ME. People often say the summer is too short. But the fall is really way too short; mid-state Maine is already experiencing peak foliage. Get it while you can… #americanguide #sunset #landscape

The Wild West at BDGA exhibition is now down and I just want to wrap up the project and say “thank you” to everyone who made this installation possible. The project was a great creative experience and an inspiring case study for ecology-based, research-driven art and design.

Finally, all remaining collaborative prints from the exhibition are now available for sale on the Bodega site here: http://bit.ly/1wiJkmd
… And check out the latest show @bdgastore featuring @soems and company if you get the chance. #wildwestatbdga #ecology #landscape

American Canopy: Trees, Forests, and the Making of a Nation  by Eric Rutkow.  Highly recommended to those interested in the cultural landscape, past, present and future, of American woodlands. Its interesting to consider trees as a strategic resource of national security…especially in terms of mounting global environmental crisis. Could it be so simple: more trees, less drones…#landscape #landarch #trees #designresearch

Eagle Lake skyscape. I’m back in Ticonderoga, NY for my Trifecta Editions artist residency. Beyond initiating several landscape installations, I’ll be taking over The American Guide Instagram for the week to post about the natural history and cultural landscape of the Adirondack region. I highly recommend The American Guide for their collective work documenting the culture ecology of America. The American Guide tumblr is one my favorites. A highly recommended follow! @americanguide @trifectaeditions #trifectares14 #landscape #americanguide

View of Connecticut River from rail-to-trail bridge in Deerfield, MA. Spectacular bike ride includes diverse landscapes from family farms to industrial mill ruins to functioning factories. I agree with John Stilgoe  that bicycles may be the best mode of landscape exploration. Read Stilgoe’s “Outside Lies Magic” and tour a new place on a well maintained bikeway and tell me it isn’t so. Ride Franklin County’s 18.7 mile River Road Loop if you ever have the chance. Many cyclists agree it’s one of New England’s best kept secrets. #railtotrail #bicycle #infrastructure #landscape #flippedexperience

View from summit (2000’) of Borestone Mountain in  Monson, Maine. Two spring-fed “fishless” alpine ponds create condition of freakishly clear and still water. Slate landslide (in center) reveals areas most famous export; “blackest slate in the world.” Monson slate can be found atop St. Paul’s Cathedral in NYC and the graves of JFK and Jackie O. I highly recommend the Borestone Mountain day hike. The mountain top all you can eat blueberry buffet is the best I’ve experienced. #landscape #slateresearch #trifectares14
