LANDSCAPE OBJECTS.

IN ORDER TO UNDERSTAND SITES OF MATERIAL EXTRACTION, WE MUST CONFRONT THE PROBLEM OF SCALE.

​AT SUCH A MASSIVE SCALE, IT BECOMES DIFFICULT TO KNOW WHEN THE LANDSCAPE

ENDS AND THE EXTRACTION SITE BEGINS.

IN THIS EXERCISE, THE CONCEPTUAL LIMIT OF VARIOUS SITES BECOMES AN ACTUAL EDGE.

BY RENDERING THESE FIELD CONDITIONS AS OBJECTS, THESE ALMOST SCALE-LESS SITES BECOME DISCRETE SPATIAL CONFIGURATIONS.
