An interpretation and illustration of Italo Calvino’s Invisible Cities. Inspired by objects in cities that mimic the cities themselves, objects in the landscape are abstracted to become their own landscape. The work is a commentary on the experience of human existence, exploring the universal semiotic and semantic language of objects, manipulated environments and constructed realities. While drawing attention to the strangeness and absurdity of everyday things, the work aims to de-code, re-configure, and re-present everyday experience in an almost-familiar ‘counter-world’.
