Private Landscape

This series is an on going project developed as part of my practice- based PhD in the Center of Cultural Studies at Goldsmiths. The intention of this research is to visualize the invisible relations that bound up the way we relate to the notion of Landscape; particularly, how do we relate to gardens as an everyday landscape in two distant cities in Chile (Iquique y Puerto Varas). The aim of the project is to understand the influences and power structures taking place that obscure and frame our daily relations towards the space we live in.

To what extent those invisible aspects reassert the class system in place in Chile, recreating over time the status and power that certain classes has over others? And therefore, how the landscape can be represented through photography in its digital form, and up to what point this technology can help us access this knowledge?
