This lecture had influence over both my subject work and my field work and both include landscapes but in different ways. It focused on the three main ideas of landscapes and how they can be shown, whether that’s through sublime, phenomenology or economically/politically/ecologically.
For my subject work, I have gone with the sublime side of landscapes, where we as people appear so small and weak in the midst of the world, surrounded by nature. Such as in the ‘Monk by the sea’ by Caspar David Friedrich.
In my field work, I have gone more for the more political and ecological side of landscapes, looking at the human influence over nature and how we are destroying the wildness of the world through deforestation and our need for control.
