  • The Projective and Introjective Experience of the Landscape




  • This paper is based on my on-going artistic and theoretical research on the concept of projection. This concept has always played a central role in the development of my own artistic work and in this paper I will address the notion of ‘projection’, using its most common definitions and personal interpretations, as it pertains to the psychological, optical and pictorial fields. I will do so by analysing its role as a transference medium for intrinsic motivations that occur through thinking, projecting and drawing pictures. Stemming from these assumptions the paper also provides a framework that considers a return to the materiality of the intangible images.
