Farmers and ranchers in the West have vast areas within their land holdings to store or discard old and out of date machinery. Although these mechanical graveyards create an unsightly blight on the landscape, they do represent a scattered visual history of farming equipment design that evolved over the past century. A creative artist with a critical eye and a good camera can discover these mechanical cemeteries as material for photographic creations taken totally out of context to the reality of the original mechanism. New translations redefine and refresh the metallic shapes within an abstract format while hinting, through fragments of machinery parts, that evidence of the implement is still present to the observer in the cropped image.
