On Pleasure Grounds
The series On Pleasure Grounds depicts scenes at a fictional amusement park – people are shown in a moment of leisure but the space they inhabit is bleak and slightly threatening.
Military weapons and wild domesticated animals populate this landscape and as viewers we are unsure what is real and what not.
The goal was to create an artificial world, nearly two-dimensional, where missiles, animals and people would function like interchangeable figurines, marionettes playing on a theatrical stage.
