Go West & Conquer All Above You addresses the romanticism surrounding exploration, landscapes void of civilization, and the human tendency to organize geography. It specifically considers the efforts of contemporary space programs and the likely sites for extra-terrestrial expansion in relation to the mindset and attitude of American pioneers and the westward expansion of the United States. The exhibition encourages the viewer to consider how romanticism of untouched landscapes can ultimately lead to the negation of the wildness that was initially attractive.
