Rid | 2009

Rid was made during a short residency in Lipovac, Serbia. The work is on one hand concerned with the beautiful mountainous landscape of the region and the tendency of its residents to live with their history, to keep alive what is disappearing. This landscape has changed a lot during the last decades because of quarrying.

With the help of image-based modeling 3D computer software, the gap left by a mountain quarry was reconstructed. A model made of a piece of landscape that it is now missing. This was visualized by a series of photographic composites and a graphite model depicting the wire-mesh model of this missing piece.
