First post

I am a young artist located in Appleton, Wisconsin and will be graduating from Lawrence University in June. Lately I have been interested in exploring consumerism and suburban growth, and their connection to The American Dream through photography and video.  I have recently been working on a series of color photographs that explores themes of isolation, loneliness and the loss of individual identity through the suburban landscape. I hope to use this blog as a means of sharing the interesting and often surprising things I have found about recent suburban development and growth, as well as wider issues like consumerism and waste.
