Moving through the American West, we seldom encounter a site free of the imprint of human occupation – ancient, historical or very fresh. Informed as we are by an inherited sense of our place in the world, we look at the land through layers of assumptions and interpretations. They filter and shape what we see in the land, mediating the experience, often creating tension in our view of the West, which our society typically holds as immense, open, unsettled.
