Abstract


  • At about the same time that the railways were snaking their way across the major continents of the earth, animals and plants were finding themselves increasingly enclosed. Exponential increases in industrialization had facilitated shifts in scale and experience. For the human, the movement was from the local to the national, for the animal, it was from the farm to the factory, for the plants it was the process of becoming fuel for the massive belching machines inhabiting the landscape in their place.
