Over Familiar


Along the road to my house there is a marsh. I pass by it everyday, but that’s all I did, pass by. Two years ago, with the marsh frozen over, I decided to fight through the brush, past the dead cattails and follow the paths cut out by the beavers to see what I could find. My efforts revealed a large clearing, one that was masked by the trees that line the roadside.


I began to wonder what else I was passing by each day that I had simply never found. And then I discovered drones.


I flew a drone over places I thought of as familiar, seeing them from a new perspective and revealing aspects I could never have otherwise noticed. I realized that as I became comfortable and developed a routine in a particular location I stopped investigating and started to take for granted the places I loved the most.


This project is my attempt to rectify this oversight in hopes of gaining a greater appreciation for the things that have become over familiar.
