Spectrum is a project born from the interest in the way men negotiate and reshape the landscape through their own perceptions and their need of re-appropriation of it using “technological filters”.
The aim of the project is to investigate the contemporary attitude to modify the landscape trading it as an aesthetic object and a customized visual experiment rather than an element existing in its own right. The purpose is also to better understand the tension generated by new media on human perceptions by constantly “filtering” our experience of seeing. The landscapes presented in the series depict both urban and suburban areas.
The photographer juxtaposed pieces of colorful plexiglass between the lens and the landscape creating distortions and refractions.
