These works explore the complexity of below ground soil dynamics across a site. The chosen transect runs through University of Virginia’s campus cemetery before cutting across the Meadow Creek riparian corridor nearby. The section below compares soil conditions between the cemetery and creek, mapping the movement of water and its relation to varying rates of organic decay.  The final model consists of a set of acrylic panels that can be layered and lit accordingly to explore relationships between different soil characteristics.
