Lucas Seres Peltzer – INHABITING THE AFTERMATH

“We are inhabiting the aftermath of our negligence to the environment, inexorably intertwining the signification of landscape with contemporary threats.”

¨Landscape is a medium in the fullest sense of the word. It is a material means like language or paint, embedded in a traditional of cultural signification and communication, a body of symbolic forms capable of being invoked and reshaped to express meanings and values.¨  W. J. T. Mitchell, Landscape and Power.

We are inhabiting the aftermath of our negligence to the environment, inexorably intertwining the signification of landscape with contemporary threats. Landscapes are charged with this bond. I am exploring the delicate state of nature by dwelling into both: landscape and bond. Searching for (charged) reagents within singular moments I aim to open new circuits of reactions for sustained memory.
