The landscape is constantly oscillating between real and imaginary,
representation and abstraction. In Field Office I ask what sort
of productive tension can be generated by juxtaposing representational
and abstract imagery of the landscape? Furthermore,
how can such combinations elicit new responses to traditional
distinctions imposed on the physical world: natural versus manmade,
interior versus exterior. I have created a number of documents
and photographs using sources that include various office
supplies as well as surveying and reconnaissance technology.
These images speak of the landscape in highly ambiguous ways
yet there remains a material link to the imagination and management
of the landscape.
