For this collaborative work, the artists have chosen the form of a wall installation to create a rural environment, thereby drawing attention to the way in which our image of nature is constructed by the media and society. The title of the exhibition Undo: New Path is rendered pictorially: a panorama analogous to a screen is intersected by a path taken from a computer’s image processing programme, so that all that remains is the sky and the trace of a landscape: an after-image of emptiness.
This wall installation and the display cases turn the THIRD ROOM into a cabinet of graphic art.
