For this assignment, I chose to depict one changing landscape in the United States: farm land. The relatively small amount of rural land in this country is being systematically re-purposed for commercial needs. This piece addresses the problem of urban sprawl through the depiction of a changing landscape, as the luscious rolling hills devolve into a Walmart parking lot packed with cars. I chose to depict cars specifically in this piece because they are significant result of urban sprawl, and a predominant element in suburban living. Furthermore, the emissions that cars put out into the atmosphere as well as the very fuel they run on are detrimental to the environment, and contribute to this destruction of fertile and natural land.
