Materials: ongoing investigation into horizon lines through a repeated action, video, and photography.
This investigation revisits a passage in Solfataras, an interactive play and manual I created in 2001. The passage reads: “He leads me to a landscape outside of Pittsburgh that is horizontal in orientation. He lies down to view it horizontally. I lie down on top of him, pressing him into the landscape. We travel to different landscapes in the area trying to recreate the same sense of horizontality. Occasionally we take a photo of the landscape from our position (another compression).”
