LandscapeVideo Exhibition. 15 – 28 May 2010, Polyterrasse ETH Zurich
The exhibition at the Polyterrasse of the ETH showed video sequences from student work and played with our contemporary perception of the city landscape.

An everyday view of Zurich, poetically captured in a walk-in Camera obscura, contrasts with the adjacent video observations and analysis on peripheral landscapes. The exhibition pointed to a changing culture of vision and showed its significance in the historic perspective of our relationship to landscape. A sound installation helped to enhance the layer of acoustic perception. The exhibition was meant to make us conscious of our changed ways of seeing and its influence on the general acceptance of landscape.
