I am a third-year PhD student at Duke University's department of Art, Art History, and Visual Studies. My focus is in media theory, art history, and visual culture in the United States in the 1960s and 70s. In my research I look at changing relationships to Earth and environment in the period through emerging communications and satellite infrastructures, land art, environmentalism, and systems theory.
