“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Where the Wild Things Are

It's the title of my essay in the first issue of the beautiful LA+: Interdisciplinary Journal of Landscape Architecture. It's about OOO and the concept of wildness, of course. I was asked to request some images to go along with it, and they made good on that, really really well:

An ear of wheat
Footprint on the moon
A rusty nail
Yoko Ono's "This Is Not Here"
The eye of a mallard


It's a really nice journal if you can get your hands on it.
