Scanning the Prairie was my way of exploring an unfamiliar environment. After I moved to Iowa in 2000, I began gathering plant specimens on daily walks near my home in Waterloo-- mostly roadside weeds that grow seemingly in defiance of the corn and beans that are everywhere. I started compiling a record of them using my desktop scanner and computer. In the process Iíve become intrigued with the prairie, and with the scanner, and how these life forms reveal themselves in the high-definition, low depth-of-field digital environment.
