576 digital c-prints ( 8’ x 12’)
and 12 hour video played on a cathode ray tube computer monitor

The work Landslideshow is a durational video and photo installation. Installed on the wall is a vista taken from a national park in the north of England. Printed across hundreds of photographs, the image itself, taken on a low-resolution point-and-shoot camera, becomes heavily pixelated at its present size, visibly revealing its digital composure. the view, at once impressive, begins to lose its significance.

Created from the same photograph, the video runs for twelve hours, rigorously introducing each and every coloured pixel of the landscape. Within this display of indefinable detail the scene of nature is lost, while in its place a far more complex vision is depicted. Human beliefs in nature such as beauty, romance and the sublime are disregarded, and a new realism is revealed through the installations exaggerated dedication to digital experience and reality at its most thorough.
