This project explores spatial production through the construction of artificial landscape imagery. Built as 3D models in Cinema 4D, the ocean landscapes are then rendered out and converted into negatives and printed as traditional silver gelatin prints.
The design process relies equally on the digital and analogue modes of production to create the photograph. The landscapes have no real-world locations and the places have no history. They are not a reproduction but a generalisation that relies on likenesses, the ecology and history of photography, recognition and the audience's experiences. There is a tension between the digital construction and material production, between the obvious digital artefacts and the overall passing image.
