Shelterbelts are rows of trees that separate fields and separate then from now


A shelterbelt is a row of trees that separate fields from the wind for controlling erosion. They define space in the plains of the midwest and these horizontal bands become the only and first place your eye stops as you look towards a low flat horizon.

This short video began as a question collated with images and presented at DesignInquiry, then I presented it at the first Pecha Kucha in Portland, Maine. Now the questions about a human-geography becoming an aesthetic DNA lives in this short movie. Enjoy.
