Landscape/Cityscape

Investigation into the roles of Art in Public Spaces including the Internet by means of applying the metonym 'Landscape/Cityscape' to the production of art. The work was intended to engage with debates about art in public places and offer new possibilities of looking at landscape. Eventually there emerged three main developments within the project: one that followed the plan towards a portable landscape laid out in the original Fellowship proposal; one in relation to internet- and computer-based works of art; and one that followed a philosophical dimension relating to fluid conditions. The three developments were guided by investigations into new visual possibilities of PDF-files, the visual use of browsers and temporal sculptural activity. Web-based works are linked from the site.
