Experiment in Landscape, No.1 is an investigation into constructed landscape, narrative and performance. Using the backdrop of Rundle Mountain under a full moon, I attempt to describe a moment of suspension in nature; suspension of belief and of physical reality. I am interested shooting the mountains at night because of paper cutout effect rendered upon them by moonlight. My act of entering the scene to do a headstand is intended as an interruption to the surreal nature of the landscape, but also an attempt for me to gain a different perspective on the landscape through performing a physical gesture that requires concentration and focus. The work is as much about the language of photography as it is about video, as I try to reconcile the construct of the tradition of monumental landscape photography with the act of being a body in space in nature.
