NEW CALL FOR PROJECTS: PROSPECT ISSUE #6, WASTELANDS
Wastelands are anthropogenic landscapes in construction and conception; they are the places where we inter our excrement, land we perceive as worthless, and, generally, spaces we avoid.
The theme offers a breadth of provocative topics, which we invite you to explore for the sixth issue of Prospect. Devalued hinterlands, post-industrial lots, dumps, abandoned malls, battlefields, swamps, barrens, garbage vortices, and suburbia are just of few of the places that we hope will inspire your diverse responses to our call, defining or subverting the ever-shifting term of Wasteland.
What do you consider a wasteland, what have they been, and what will they be in the future?
Prospect is a forum to encourage playful and critical response and a collaborative and interdisciplinary approach to central themes in landscape studies.
