Terra Cognita

Terra Cognita

Stephanie Valentin

earthbound (2009)

Sfumato, Italian for ‘smoky’, is a technique in painting in which the contours of objects are blurred. With the use of a 3D programme and mathematical noise algorithms Edi Szekely created idyllic, apparently virgin landscapes. But by applying a sfumato technique to parts of the image, the impression of mystery is evoked. It is reminiscent of the way in which we usually think about  landscape: as something that is largely shaped by interventions on the part of man.

Stephanie Valentin (Australia, 1962) makes the changing relations between nature, culture and technology central in her work, which is sometimes created in collaboration with scientists. She received her Masters degree in Photomedia from the College of Fine Arts of the University of New South Wales, in Sydney. Her work has often been shown, and has been published in Wired and Nature.
