Screaming landscapes

We live in uncertain times in the areas of economy, politics and climate change. Regarding the latter, President Obama wrote in 2014: “We are the first generation to feel the impact of climate change and the last generation to be able to do something about it.”

I want to show what is already contained in nature, invisible for the human eye, the landforms that we know. What is underneath the surface or what could be.

A photo is a 2D representation, framed by the photographer, of a 3D reality frozen in time. By making a depth map based on the contrast and the colors in the photo, I show a hidden spatial experience of the photo. This result in surprising combinations where it seems like the photo and the world it represents are screaming at us. As if the photo or, part of it, breaks open and shows what lives inside. This way a new truth is created that is not realistic, perhaps partly predictive, but not for the same money; a fantasy or post-apocalyptic scenes.
