Moving Image, Video
I have created my own landscape by ripping, photographing, drawing and painting a changing landscape. Portals are used throughout as a metaphor for a lens.
There are people situated inside the landscape; construction workers, hikers and someone nestled inside the arm of a crane - they are made to look small.
I have been looking at cranes and window cleaners outside tall buildings. Also, mobile towers that appear, and seem to be trying to look like trees in the landscape. Gradually, my awareness of these towers has increased.
