If entropy represents the second law of the thermodynamic, it is the first law of ‚landscape‘.
At first, in a great distance to urban processes are the lengths of the Canadian landscape Ontario‘s.
With Fluxhorizon, the title of this work, evolvs an entropic landscape use
of a gold mine and its tailings, whose fate on the Frankfurt’s or New York’s bourse will be negotiated.
Only with a stable high price of gold is this open pit mine lucrative, and like an invisible filament, it is associated with the stock market barometer of our cities, which apparently determines our social welfare.
With Fluxhorizon unfolded for us a discourse next to the scenic intervention too. Social forces and political influences are here also playing a central role as the comprehension of scenic and biological processes.
