4 Maps About a Missing Hill

These prints were created as part of “Chance Ecologies, Hunter’s Point South”, an ecological site specific group inquiry in Hunter’s Point Queens. Each one explores┬áthe increasing density of “progress” from natural landscape to modern urban development. If cities are, in fact, layer upon layer of urban palimpsests what does that initial erasure feel like? In the case of Hunter’s Point Queens, the initial erasure was a hill which set in motion an ecological cascade toward the superfund site that Newtown Creek is today.
