subdivision (2021)

The maps in subdivision, cut out of remnants of my grandfather’s barns, are a record of the change in Hunterdon County, New Jersey, over the past forty years. Originally steeped in crops and livestock, farmland has been disappearing from Hunterdon County for decades. From one hundred forty-nine acres to twelve, my grandparent’s farm has shrunk dramatically, slowly sold off in parcels until they lost most of the farmlands and pastures. The process of growth, and ultimately loss, that they started years ago is one that I am remembering and reiterating now.
