Dan Bruggeman puts a modern spin on traditional landscape paintings by showing the relationship between the man-made and the natural in what he calls “new world landscapes.”

Write about a place where man-made structures intersect with nature. Do you think that place has been enhanced or ruined by the changes?

Make your own “new world landscape.” You can create a visual depiction, like Dan, by painting, sketching or photographing, or you can use visual language to create a poem that depicts man-made and natural worlds colliding.
