Dan Rule: Landscapes

Visual installation

These landscapes are fabricated from YouTube videos, nature desktop wallpapers and some of the artist’s own shots. They were made without visiting any place worth seeing. Using the visual conventions of landscape painters throughout time, the surreal combinations emphasize our idealized visions of particular landscapes – the Cave, the Waterfall, the Valley, etc. – as places are made both pastoral and unsettling.
