Photographed in Bolivia’s Uyuni Salt Flats this series forms part of a larger body of work begun in 2008 involving interventions in nature. In the case of Spice, the choice of pepper and saffron spices to make the interventions was inspired by the space itself: a desert of salt. These interventions are inherently ephemeral, and were made to be photographed. The work intersects other forms of art, with elements from painting (the use of pigments) and Land Art (transforming the landscape). [Extract : 1500 Gallery]

Apart from the probably spectacular experience of being out at night on the ski slopes with snowcats, the transformation from landscape to image is equally exceptional. It is in fact a chain reaction of three technical processes: Machine-Electrical Light-Camera. The recorded landscape at every moment embodies one stage of a constantly changing land-art piece which exists only through the light of the very machine that creates and alters this land-art piece: the snowcat. Then the camera transforms – with yet another technical process – that ephemeral land art into a permanent picture. Thus, the resulting photographs seem to be withdrawn from this world, a reminiscence of nature lost in a rapid reverie; unique, solemn beauty as a result of applied technologies. Luna Gooseberry
