The show FRE$H @IR explores how contemporary landscapes and environments are perceived in a digital age. It aims to challenge and evaluate our perceptions of simulacra and simulation, as well as our perceptions of value.

What makes a landscape valuable; and what make its representation valuable?

Through a conceptual exploration of a library of symbols (acting as stand in’s for elements of the ‘natural’) the work aims to aggravate the viewer with its shoddy editing and repetition to the point of honest deliberation on the contemporary representations of landscape in the arts and popular culture.
