Aims of the Project

The aim of the project has been to:

(a)     investigate the influence that systems of spatial representation exert upon the communication of aesthetic qualities arising specifically from direct experience of our physical environment;

(b)     to study the qualitative differences in perception of landscape space experienced through systems of visual representation used in contemporary visual art; and

(c)     to investigate the capacity of digitally augmented stereoscopy to visualise new models of landscape suitable to an art gallery setting.
