Project 3 of 3
Badlands was born out of an innate fascination with the surreal desert landscapes outside of the metropolis of Phoenix, Arizona. This netherworld of eroded rocks and rusted soil is seemingly extraterrestrial - jagged mountainous zigzags criss-cross Pre-cambrian mounds, marked stratum of eons of evolution, degradation, and rebirth, intertwined with the endlessly blue Arizona sky. The Painted Desert - as it is known - is a land full of the remnants of a previously lush and fertile environment, now dried up and succumbed to the harshness of the arid atmosphere and unforgiving sun. The sweeping colors, immense spread of land, mountains eroding into flowing waves of sand and pebble - indeed, it seems that it is a glimpse from another world.
