Problem set #14: Make a landscape

Related studies project week #3: Make a landscape

Rules:

  1. Make a landscape without using any land
  2. Make it romantic
  3. Take us there

When I read ‘make it romantic’, I imagined someone contemplating a landscape, as seen in the paintings of Caspar Friedrich. I decided to create this scene using avocado skins, cotton, and 2 figurines. It’s an homage to Friedrich, where his paintings encouraged the viewer to place himself in the position of the Rückenfigur, or the person seen from behind.
