We Dream in Terrain is a photographic-installation which investigates landscape photography by breaking one of its core rules: the idealized flat horizon line. With photographs taken every five steps through an eroding historic site transitioning into a mixed-use space, the shape of the ground where the tripod sits is mimicked in the angle of the horizon line. The landscape presents its own unique topographical portrait, resembling the crests and troughs of waves. Each deviation from a flat horizon line speaks of the composition of the ground, effects of weather, as well as human, plant, and animal interactions with the landscape.
