Speculative Research Series
Inspired by a world-building workshop with Liam Young of Tomorrow's Thoughts Today, Infrascapes explores world-building through the manipulation of the infrastructure that energizes the contemporary world.

Other images provide a sectional reading that further questions the notions of scale and spatiality.
