A Road to Nowhere
This project, A Road to Nowhere speculates on how we might engage with landscape in the future. It explores a new form of storytelling perspective through virtual and augmented Reality. Questions are raised about limits and thresholds that we have encountered while photographing, recording and 3D scanning in Kielder forest. Making use of this point cloud information gathered from different parts of this unique landscape, new landscapes are fabricated, telling the story of a singular, subjective journey.
In this new reality we find key elements that make up a synthetic collective memory of Kielder Water; old roads which have been swallowed by the man-made lake, landmark trees merging with the mathematical grid of the plantation and the banks of Kielder Water are all repositioned. The film explores the materiality, rhythm, atmosphere and personal perception of the surround area. On the acoustic level actual recordings where documented to unveil the thresholds between the cluster of landscape spaces and augment a sensory experience of this new place.
