Otro Paisaje (Another Landscape) Mario Ayguavives
"In “Otro Paisaje” my intention is to create images typically seen on postcards or posters which show a beautiful natural landscape. I then manipulate these on the computer, as the human race has done with the earth, introducing a disturbing aspect through the repetition, one or more times, of some of its components or through the use of symmetry. In this way I intend to produce a strong contradiction to nature where no two elements are ever the same. Repetition and its supposed perfection is something belonging to industrialisation.
The landscapes that I have created can be beautiful, just as beautiful as many other consumer products designed by man, but in them there is something artificial and so perfect that we should be unsettled.”
"… As the human race has done to the earth."
