Why do we render a verdant countryside as natural even though this landscape is incessantly mowed and fertilized beyond habitability? Can representation of landscape be altered and juxtaposed to bring viewers to fresh perspectives? My master’s project investigates the various representations of the Swiss landscape along with their associations and experiments with specific techniques including image manipulation, juxtaposition and simplification to modify these representations in order to bring new perspectives.TutorsSarah Owens / Alex Hanimann
