New Orleans-based multidisciplinary artist Ana Hernandez presents Altering Internal Landscapes: In pursuit of unearthing bodies of Energy, a series that is the result of her research into areas of human rights abuses that stem from the practices and production of the oil and gas industry; specifically, their exploration of select geographic locations and the subsequent extraction of the resources “discovered” within these particular geological formations. This series is a visual representation of ecological trauma, it aims to highlight the dissection and destruction of a physical and psychological landscape, whose vulnerable and shifting body print can be traced and mapped by the scars of injury left on the environment and all who inhabit it.
