The project Altered came out of the ideas around change and development with in the modern world. The world is ever changing and our cities are growing, gradually invading on areas of natural beauty. While this development is a part of our western culture, I found it sad to think that in a few years’ time we could be faced with choices about what landscapes we loose and what ones we keep.
The work in this sense challenges this idea, by taking photos of areas that could be seen as sublime and digitally altering them in a way that could be seen as scaring the landscape. I chose the pylons to do this as they are something we see on a daily basis, and are essential to our modern desires for energy. I added them as if they were blueprints; just an idea, nothing more, in doing this I wanted the viewer to make their own judgements on the work, to bring their ideas about energy and our ever changing landscape to the work itself.
