Communication plays a significant role in our everyday lives and is represented in the landscape in various ways. Many constructions such as radar equipment, navigation signs, and transmitters are each visual signifiers of the communication infrastructure. This current work springs from the observation of such signifiers in our environment. In making it, I was mainly interested in the landscape and the way it is being constantly altered to meet various needs. These changes affect our perception of the landscape and environment and thereby influence our way of life.
My first concern was that these changes in and of the landscape are not always beneficial to it. For example, the billboard is a site of commerce and can be considered to be visual pollution in the environment; the sound mirrors are now only witnesses to time and serve to remind us of a 'dead' technology. The foghorn has been out of use since the advent of satellite navigation which is a much more efficient form of technology. Having in mind the pace at which technology advances, this work raises questions about future landscapes and the nature of the artefacts that will remain on the landscape in years to come. The images may also evoke a nostalgia for times gone by.
