“The Impossibility of Returning Home #001” is the final product of a labour intensive process utilising digital technology. It is an image that has been created using hundreds of satellite photos that have been digitally stitched together to create a larger image. This image was then made into an A0 poster size print for the purpose of rephotographing. The poster was folded, creased and scrunched up until the paper and the image started to disintegrate. The poster was then photographed with various lighting and exposure considerations to create otherworldly dreamlike landscapes. “The Impossibility of Returning Home #001” is the starting point of an ongoing series of work.
