5 mins. Animated Loop. Silent. Single Channel Installation, 2013

Part One of a series exploring collisions of Orientalism and science fiction. The video speculates a new landscape composed from the aquatints of India, made by the British landscape painters Thomas and William Daniells (1749-1837). All human and architectural elements seem to have escaped the perspectival gaze of the camera obscura with which the paintings were constructed. Similar to the technique of Anamorphosis in Renaissance painting, the digital skew frees the structures from time, gravity and the picture-plane.
