‘(dis)locations’ depicts the alteration of landscapes through digital topography. Each scenery represents a variation of time and space. Captured at different moments, every pattern of land is merged into a single image created by satellite renderings. The patchwork of digital mapping composed of fragmented landscapes expresses the technological difficulties to precisely represent a location on Earth. These abstract sceneries found online describe a paralleled reality where seasons and time are combined and blend into each other, forming a dreamlike landscape.

Bio
Aurelie Crisetig (b. 1992) is a Swiss photographer and visual artist. She uses photography as a tool to explore the alteration of human memory in a world overwhelmed by digital entities. Working both with film and digital photography, her works reflect on the constant use of mechanical recordings, especially in public and cultural places. After graduating with a BA in Art History and Film Studies in Lausanne, she completed an 8-week photography programme at the New York Film Academy in New York. In 2018, she graduated with an MA Photography from UAL: University of Arts, London.
