Whether it’s in the most subtle of ways or in drastic ways, the landscape is ever changing in today’s world. Human expansion is constantly taking place as we continue to take over and move across the surface of our planet.
This project takes a glimpse through time to show not only how humans are developing the land for themselves to live on, but also shows us how the technology to view our landscape changes through time as well.

For this project, Google Earth was utilized to find areas of importance to the artist’s life. Google Earth’s ability to look back in time, by allowing the user to view archived imagery from up to several years back, became the perfect tool to use. The archived images not only show how the landscape looked and changed throughout the course of time, but also allow the viewers to see a difference in each individual image showing the progression of the quality of the captured images.

Shawn Kelly, 23, of Warrensburg Mo., has been spinning fire for six years. Kelly performs with a couple different fire performing troupes and loves entertaining people wherever he goes.
In the photo, Shawn holds fire poi, weighted wicks suspended on chains that are swung all around in patterns and dance.
In the photo, Shawn spins his fire poi in a tight circle while bringing them closer to his face in a daring, but popular spinning technique.
In the photo, Shawn stretched both arms out as he swings the fire poi around the late evening sky.
In the photo, Shawn launches his fire spinning staff, a well balanced bar with ignited fuel-soaked wicks attached at each end, high into the air which causes the flames to look like a small explosion in the sky.
In the photo, Shawn spins his fire staff in front of himself which causes the ignited ends to appear to circle around his body.
