Within this context, a collaboration was conceitved – between the glass of a photographic lens, and the simulation of a digital model. Exploring the landscapes, Ben Sandler’s camera becomes the recorder of the original source, while ZEITGUISEDs digital modelling tool interprets the geologic phenomenology of the land. Within this process, an aesthetic language is developed. It interpolates between the inorganic substrates of the prehistoric landscape, with the organic and tectonic structures embedded within. Based on image analysis and observation, the project circumvents the dichotomy of the real and the fake, as it combines the two in imagery that is taking cues from itself. The resulting world becomes a striking and uncanny walk-in bastardization between the rich reality of the landscape and the reduced analytic model thereof.
