Natures “Wildscape Prater”,
Site-Specific Art Department, University of Applied Arts, Vienna
Instructors: Tony Heywood - Tim Richardson
Through the exploration of the Prater with the intention to create potentially visionary “synthetic” landscape forms that are more representative of what must be considered a re-natured urban lifestyle. The studio focuses on the role that screen-based digital media plays in communicating our experiences of nature and the enviroment, specifically the current phenomena of vlogging. A new generation of urban dwellers increasingly communicates via disjoineted visual narratives within a very collagic and filmic framework, where the exchange of unconnected visual narratives is seen as an acceptable form of visual communication.
