There is a refined oil pipeline running through our neighborhood with a short section crossing the corner of the backyard, near the creek. You can see the interruption in the landscape as young trees are removed yearly so the roots don’t interfere with the structures underground. I used the cnc to carve scraps of walnut into an altered form of Narsil/Anduril, the sword that was destroyed and reforged in The Lord of the Rings. I’ve been thinking about how landscape is deployed in depictions of good and evil, specifically in fantasy stories.
