1.1 Making Invisible Visible

Almost all of the of the Keystone XL is buried four feet underground, with a meticulous process to replace the land exactly the same as it was before. This means that the pipeline is invisible to those passing by it.

1.1 Magnetize Landscape

People benefit from oil although it can contaminate the ecological system. The Keystone XL pipeline is threatening the  balance of environment for its risk of oil leak. The chance of oil leak differs by the distinct conditions of landscape, geological

1.1 The Post-Oil Energy Pod

Beneath the vast plains of the American midwest landscape, lies the 1179 miles long Keystone pipeline that transports crude oil from Alberta, Canada to Houston, Texas.  Under the seemingly undisturbed farmland, without a moment of rest, the oil travels at

1.1 Subsiding Landscape

While there are many issues concerning the safety and protection of the pipeline, one of the issues that often does not receive much attention is that of subsidence.  Subsidence is a byproduct of heavy underground resource extraction.  When these extracted

In the not-too-distant future, decades past the point of peak oil, construction booms fueled by fossil-fuels have declined, leaving abandoned construction equipment, tower cranes and bulldozers to rust and oil-pipe infrastructure no-longer maintained. Out of this broken landscape come the

The aim of this project is to create a permanent mark on the land where the pipeline experiences “leaks and incidents”.  The project creates mobile response units that can be dispatched to spill incidents to assist in the clean up
