HyperReal World: Landscape as Commodity

The urge to adapt the world to ourselves has long ago replaced the need to adapt ourselves to the place we inhabit. The mid-20th century interrogations of hyper-reality by Umberto Eco and discussions of simulation by Jean Baudrillard are here applied to recently renewed interest in political and environmental landscape. This collection of contemporary photographic work will attempt to forge a dialogue between the man-affected landscape and the idealized presentation of a landscape created for purposes of habitat or entertainment.
