Mediated Landscape 顯微山水
Video Installation [Monitors, Microscopics & Wooden Structure] , 2011
Microscopic Vision: Mediated Landscape is related to how the media biases our perceptions of nature. Many of us spend much more time in front of monitors than in nature. Our impressions of the natural environment have become collages of the spectacular, dramatic, threatening and even cataclysmic images we see on TV, complete with strong video effects. However, nature is not necessarily so entertaining: in our everyday lives we see the silhouette of the city; the sea creatures that inhabit the busy harbour. Such sights, visually humble by comparison with media renditions of nature, are an important part of where we are. The difference between our natural and our mediated perception of the environment is emphasized by the microscopes in the structure.
