Artificial Horizons, 2008–09
Large format photographs
When placed in the natural landscape, one thing persists: the horizon. It provides context, a constant reminder of the ground and a reference to time and place. However, in the urban landscape the natural horizon is almost always invisible; artificial horizons take its place. No longer is the difference between ground and sky so clear, nor is the sense of time and place. What defines the urban landscape is exactly that which is created by humans, where time has a freezing effect and place means only the people.
