There is a disjointedness that is visibly present in the rural midwestern landscape, brought on by land occupiers usurping power through industrialization. Communities and indigenous life are quartered in spaces left over. I notice something like a passive compliance between the community and the commercialized space has coated the surface, but beneath that, there is a resistance that makes the disjointedness visible here, and everywhere that it exists.

Moving through these landscapes as a visitor and collecting the histories of the residents unveils to me their struggle to survive. Scenes of communities projected onto the landscape that was built by industrialization, and the reverse, captures this discrepancy.
