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.

    I love this piece, Margo. I keep thinking about experience and pause.

Oh yeah! OMG! Thanks Nick, good luck! Down to the home made mustard and pickles, YES! #burger #cheeseburgerpurity @friscosjoke ❤️🔥🤺 Monochrome #archiepoodle on a long Saturday Colder and windier and wetter than it looks. Feels like January. In Maine. Or the new March in Maine. #handknit @tylereldridgeart was tired and is that @ksimpsondesign about to get on the wrong train? #mecagdny18 @mecagd Disappointed to leave a day early to beat another storm. ❄️ Northeast weather in March😳We’ll catch Pratt and Dean @accooney99 next time!
