Global Architecture Platform

Land shape #1

We see through the eyes of a machine: lines, rectangles, squares. A reduced world, minimal and harsh. A documentary view on cornfields that reveals geometric shapes and describes a landscape that has been distanced from “nature”. We also see: beauty, precision, destruction. Farmers, who create an aesthetic landscape – maybe in the tradition of Land Art. We see a machine-friendly world with precise, almost digital-like structures.
