“When I think of something, I am actually thinking of something else. You can only think of something if you think of something else. For instance: You look at a new landscape. But it only looks like something new to you, because in your mind you can ́t help but compare it with some landscape you have already known”
In “Praise of love”, Jean-Luc Godard
LANDSCAPE PHILOSOPHY is a project that explores the concept of landscape as a subjective form of looking at the world and at the reality around us.
From the starting point that the idea of landscape is fundamental to our lives, to our experience, to our conception of what is around us (space) and to how we (body) occupy that space, we experience, through the contact and confrontation between various spaces and glances that are projected, forms of fiction on the surrounding reality, a performative work using the tools of the word, video, and live body.
