Transcapes is an exhibition that questions the many ways in which the landscape is represented by our culture. The representation of the landscape through various existing systems interests me. It can alter our perception of reality keeping us at an abstracted distance by turning the human into passive spectators and consumers. It can change landscape into a capitalized form. My work explores this idea through the use of found imagery and captured moments taken out of context to question the original intent or experience.
Throughout the work, the viewer will notice references to mapping, the media, digital landscapes, military intelligence and travel systems. These references highlight the tenuous relationship between nature and culture, where struggles occur as we alter the land in which we live.
