In "Regular Division" shots of gardens inside greenhouses and domes all over the world mosaiced together. That would be trippy enough, but overlaying each shot is a magnified, high resolution paint stroke from a landscape. It gives the short film, which already whirls around in a dizzying circle, an extra surreal edge.
Regular Division is a collaged video loop that was shot and digitally composed on location in Europe, Asia and the Middle East as part of a new series of works looking at landscape. The series responds to the impact of the digital technologies on our representation of landscape and the effect of this on our relationship with landscape.
Regular Division, the first in this series of works, features a spiral of intermingled scenes filmed from inside a number of green houses and domes. An artificial paradise of foliage under a canopy of gridded glass. The video also features high resolution images of brush strokes taken from classical oil paintings bridging a connection to the traditional medium that has played such an important role in the representation of landscape in the past.
I hope that cleared it all up for you.
