This image shows a diagram of the dredge bridge and a new type of diagram I am working with and calling a correlation wheel.  
The dredge bridge is a representation of a body of ideas, and it shows specific relationships through juxtapositions (crane arm, barge, pilings, etc) and dimensioned perspectival drawings.  This representation builds on some of my earlier collages looking at the way machines operating created space.  The intent is a armature for movement which creates habitable space on the interior (a path to walk through, stopping points, small shops) and organizes material dynamics through sectional relationships on the exterior (picking up and moving sediments, for instance).  Here, a crane arm and cable is attached to a housing that slides up and down a track on the exterior of a box truss with a 20’ square section.
The correlation wheel allows me to plot environmental events and dynamics through time- over 1 year in this case- and to correlate them and speculating on how environmental operations might respond to and effect these tendencies.  In this case, sedimentation in the Riachuelo is highly correlated with precipation (assuming that most of the sediment comes from erosion) whereas hyacinth growth is correlated with higher temperatures (they don’t grow when average low daily temperatures approach freezing).  The diagram is incredibly powerful (though not yet effective for communication) as it correlates disparate events.  I intend to further experiment with this diagram, layering in recreational and industrial activities and working to make them communicate more clearly.

take a park. excavate a ragged trench in the middle of the pretty lawn. the rocks and pipes and mud that's left and the backhoe ripping in to them? that is landscape instrumentalism.
