Two case studies focus on two very different landscapes, and attempt to account for the changing relationships that make them over time.

These two case studies, presented during The Shape of a Practice, explore two very different landscapes and the changing relationships that create them over time. Artist and researcher Ravi Agarwal and academic Paulina Lopez share an ongoing project that formulates personal memories of Agarwal’s desert homeland near the city of Jaisalmer. Following this, geographer Huiying Ng and urban farmer Michelle Lai focus on the urbanizing landscape of Chiang Mai, Thailand, and its relationship to alternative agroecology.
