One of Joshua Dudley Greer's projects is Somewhere along the Line which was made from a series of extended road trips throughout the United States over a number of years. The project explores the landscape created by the Interstate Highway System, which has permanently altered the way we experience the landscape and in turn, each other. This highway system was built by leveling mountains, mowing down forests and circumventing rivers.

What is lurking is the way the landscape has been subordinated and dominated by the highway system that people now rely upon for their everyday existence.
