Natural Scenes 2006

The series Natural Scenes deals with a contemporary perception of the landscape, deeply influenced by mass media but linked in some way to the tragic spirit of the romantic vision of nature.

By playing popular horror movies in real, familiar landscapes I deal with the way in which mass media images come to be a part of our own personal memories, influencing the perception of our environments. Within this tension there is an interplay between tragic – and fictional – events such that, even though they are not an actual part of the history of these landscapes, they nevertheless appear implicit in them.

I believe this coalescence is engendered through the combination of ancestral fears and cultural references.
