The past thirty years have witnessed social, geopolitical, technological, and economic change on a global scale. Alongside these shifts, landscape has also changed its nature. Focusing primarily, but not exclusively, on the synergies between the disciplines of photography and architecture, this international and interdisciplinary conference will examine and critically reassess the interface between production and representation in the creation of contemporary landscape.
Emerging Landscape asks practitioners, writers, critics, artists, and others working in the broad fields of the built environment and the represented environment to reconsider the idea of landscape by interrogating the relationship between space and image; to explore the interactions that exist between representation (i.e., the imaginary and symbolic shaping of the human environment) and production (i.e., the physical and material changes wrought on the land).
