Human / Nature. 2014.

 

In a post-industrial world, notions of land and country are inseparable from an ideology of use. Changes in the landscape due to extraction, production, consumption and exhaustion, are all accustomed, expected and normalised. 

As the traces of pre-industrial landscapes are erased from mainstream spaces and cultural consciousness, the concept of nature, or that which is natural or untouched, is fenced, contained and restrained within the boundaries of the National Park.

Separation however is more than a fence or border, and amidst a cultural disconnectedness, human desires to experience, interact, and use these spaces continue to alter the accessible landscape, and interrupt the view.
