MA work

Taking the landscape as a starting point my work explores different historical and current ideas of looking and depicting. I am interested in the interrelation between the perceived, depicted and described landscape. Through photographing the most far-away point in the landscape, revisiting an 18th century viewpoint and producing a 3D object from a photograph, I investigate ways of understanding the landscape using modern technology.
