LANDSCAPE ANARCHITECTURE SERIES

In this series a certain loss of one’s “sense of place” is addressed in relation to the increasing presence of competing, simultaneous viewpoints that conflict with one’s perception of an immediate reality.  Deliberately interfering with the illusions of spatial-temporal continuity made possible by realist modes of compositing, video sequences of suburban vistas are recast as sites, and sights, of psychological duress. Employing extensive digital de-composition, images of mundane backyard scenes and quiet neighborhoods are broken apart into discrete parts.  Once separated, individual components are manipulated at frame-level and then realigned in accordance with their original spatial integrity.  Temporally, the sequences of elements are intentionally desynchronized, quietly dislocated from their grounding in a singular sense of “here” and “now.”
