  The emphasis here shifts from object appearances to processes of formation, dynamics of occupancy, and the poetics of becoming…Thus, if the role of the landscape architect is less to picture or represent these activities than it is to facilitate, instigate and diversify their effects in time, then the development of more performative forms of imaging (as devising, enabling, unfolding techniques) is fundamental to this task. A move away from ameliorative and scenographic designs toward more productive, engendering strategies necessitates a parallel shift from appearances and meanings to more prosaic concerns for how things work, what they do, how they interact, and what agency and effects they might exercise over time.
