Obstruction Belt

The project proposes a regional chemical processing infrastructure which uses energy waste to limit the soft boundary between natural ecosystems and the encroachment of rural industry. Through collaborative acts of civil disobedience, environmentalists around the United States have engaged in a tireless

Off-Grid

The project provides a model for ‘un-gridding’ depopulating rural outposts while boosting agricultural and ecological activity in new interregional migration corridors. The Keystone XL pipeline has become a catalyst for the emergence of numerous migrations, setting forth a huge population

Mobile Energy Market

The project proposes a mechanism for distributed aerial delivery of energy resources, and a market-driven system of surveillance and feedback, capitalizing on advances in UAV technology. From the moment fossil fuels are extracted from the site, they participate in a complex process largely

Constructing Future Geologies

The project provides a constructed index of cultural memory and natural resources in a rapidly destabilizing landscape. /Impetus The infiltration of technology on the landscape is one of the most significant things in the debate over the Keystone XL pipeline. The

Teamster Timeshare

The project capitalizes on excess kinetic energy and rampant speculative investment in a series of ‘boom towns’ to propose a growth engine for a ‘boom corridor’ and ‘energy megaregion’. New corridors of oil ‘boom towns’ in the Upper Midwest are enjoying unprecedented

The Bureau of Water Management

The project proposes to repurpose and dramatically expand oil infrastructure for the management of subterranean and prehistoric regional water resources. In developed nations, where complex networks, systems and processes are increasingly consolidated and interconnected, managerial and infrastructural frameworks become necessary

Ethanol Boutique

The project recalibrates economies of scale and shifting resources in the Great Plains by strategically consolidating ethanol production and demand. As progress pushes the world into a greater degree of interconnectivity and the forces of globalization push economic processes to

Fractured Landscape

The project consolidates emerging flows of waste carbon dioxide to propose new models of sequestration and energy-based tourism. The process of hydraulic fracturing, in addition to oil and natural gas extraction in general, can have a very dramatic effect on

Shifting Securities

The project provides a model for US military involvement as energy policy shifts from expansionist logics to domestic security. The geopolitical center of oil production is shifting from the Eastern Hemisphere, and will reach the point in the near future where

1.1 Nomadic

While extensive coverage of the Keystone Pipeline continuously pulses through the media, there are hidden “players” and issues that seem to be overlooked. Although TransCanada thrives onward by promising people permanent well paid jobs, their claims seem to have little

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
