I was introduced to this piece by Melissa Friedling and Dr. Shannon Mattern. By their direction I also read by a chapter from Scott McDonald's book The Garden in the Machine: A Field Guide to Independent Films About Place (Berkeley: University of California Press, 2001). It was presented to encourage a departure from conventional audience expectations of cinematic experiences.
This pair of works demonstrates how different art practices can engage a subject, in this case, landscape.
I'm interested in these works because they are presented on a single stage while engaging critical text , curated cinema, and alternative art forms like the cycloscpe and the large scale panorama.
