Factitious Imprints focuses on the idea of constructed nature and how it can be documented and defined through a palimpsest of imprints that simultaneous human and natural processes fabri-cate on surfaces/terrains; what kind of fragments these actions leave as relics of a possible post human or post natural landscape? Incorporating 3d modeled and rendered structures, perspectives and edited camera imagery taken from navigation tools such as drones, Google Maps, and handheld recording devices, the project courses through a distorted landscape of overlapping surfaces in smaller or larger scale—from skin textures to food containers to simulations of plants and oceans—that shifts and changes form as we move through it. The landscape stands there as an amalgam of abstractions, mainly because it declares itself as an unknown place in an unknown time. Achronic territories immersed into an almost post apocalyptic ambience.
