Hinterland

 

Hinterland questions the notion that there is a growing disconnect between people and the countryside due to the effects of rapid urbanisation. As a result, a shift has been described in our understanding of landscape. This was explored through an installation to reimagine various affiliations with rural life in the medium of landscape painting. Traditional methods are reworked to manipulate and alter this data to fabricate the scenography of a place. Hinterland is a room based installation that seeks to construct environments that embody a history of the aestheticisation of nature. Each fragment of this landscape is located in a spatial configuration provides the viewer with a surreal sense of the scale and dimension. Once defined and aligned, the textures and imagery from the original painting are then projection mapped onto its new terrain.
