For this project I constructed a large landscape following romantic landscape conventions. I built up the image in various layers like a collage, selecting different elements (flowers, trees, hills, clouds...) from old postcards. I drew each of the elements individually, superimposing them and colouring them until they disappeared leaving only the image. In this way all the complex process of production remained concealed. However, I wanted the relationship of the forces between image and structure, contemplation and construction to be revealed at a certain moment. The impact of the structure of lights that appear one after the other focuses attention on the detail and the landscape disappears, thus making the spectator question the conventional way of looking at landscape.
At the same time I built another animated sequence taking place from inside a room. We see through the window a van driving up and stopping in front of the house. The sequence consists of a horizontal sweep, but the movement of the camera is in slow motion and doesn't coincide with the development of the action, encouraging the observer to concentrate on the details.
