Mapping by Matthew K Acer

The Frost Line

The Frost Line of North America is in a constant state of flux. It is largely invisible to inhabitants, but its changes have dire consequences on the natural, artificial, and sociopolitical landscapes that it inhabits. It is through the dissection of these landscapes that we unearth and translate invisible relationships into physical manifestations. This work aims to act as a laboratory of sorts that analyzes, predicts, and manipulates different ecosystems to bring to life issues of the built, natural, and chemical environments. It then blurs the lines between the real and the imaginary to show the latent potential of inhabitants to adapt to changes beyond declarative solutions.
