I definitely used and abused distance
- I definitely used and abused the distance - is the starting point of a main project about disappearing landscape; the research is beginning in London where the scenery is constantly changing and where at the moment brutalism architecture and garden council house are being targeted to be the next. I visited these places and chose some details of them to print 1:1, creating an entire panorama that are going to fall apart under a golden curtain. Piece of interior walls like ruins are meticulously recreate, this is the inner part, tender, intimate and fragile.

In my research I continuously attempt to spot potential landscapes, my point of departure is in ways of evading eye interaction, rites of eating and drinking, traditions of greeting, when people stand together and when they keep well away from each other, when people feel free to talk to strangers and when they do not, it is from these details of comportment that a public realm is composed together with structure and infrastructures that enable and affect them.
My background is in architecture and theatre set design, I use them as the first medium composes at the same time of real needs and obvious fiction.
