'Davidson’s Dream' tells the story of engineering in an allegorical narrative through people doing exceptional things in extraordinary ways. It represents the interconnection of the landscape, crops, waterways, livestock and structures, balanced by interdisciplinary teams of people in agriculture and biosystems engineering. The pastoral composition as a whole with its lack of restraint, stylized spaces and eccentric images parallels the college’s unrestrained remarkable response to challenges now and in the future. In collaboration with Thomas Rosborough.
