Portrait of a Landscape

Faculty members Gudrun Lock, Ben Moren, and Janet Lobberecht have been awarded a mini-grant from the University of Minnesota’s Institute on the Environment, in collaboration with the University of Minnesota Landscape Architecture professor Jessica Rossi-Mastracci.

The grant will go towards their forthcoming project Portrait of a Landscape: Capturing Time, Experience, Perception, and Data Through an Experimental Analysis of Shoreham Yards. The project will “create a ‘portrait’ of Shoreham Yards, the active 230-acre train, trucking, and bulk distribution site in Northeast Minneapolis.” Portrait of a Landscape seeks to have science meet art, combining standard data mapping and documentation with “experimental ways of seeing, documenting, measuring, and storytelling.”
