As I have been researching and questioning the effects of the image of nature since 17 century romantic landscape paintings. This sketch is based from looking at Albert Bierstadt's 1868 "Among the Sierra Nevada". 


A large part of my process is adopting the tactics of commercialized nature. By taking the time to draw a landscape, I hoped to learn what makers, artists, photographers, videographers, writers, entrepreneurs and all other participants of simulation gain from recreating the nonexistent.
