Landscape Projections Ireland

Lightprojections in the landscape of Ireland standing in focus emphasizing the photographic documentation.

Embedded in selected landscapes the projections are photographed from specific view angles. The photographic documentation was deliberately timed at dusk as an instrument to balance perception between projection and surroundings. Only a few minutes during the evening twilight allow for an optimal interplay between ambient light and the projection to achieve the desired photographic result.
The implementation was made by using a portable projection device consisting of a power generator and a video projector.
