Concerned with questions about the authenticity and accuracy of images in contemporary society, Marc Behiel’s Digital Landscapes project presents a series of computer-generated images of landscapes. These images are displayed on a computer monitor and depict fictional or non-existent landscapes. Ironically, the images –as electronic constructs- do not exist from a legal point of view either. To be copyrighted, the digital images would have to be printed out in the form of the computer code that makes them up- and this is exactly what the artist has done. The books are displayed for examination alongside the computer screen in a specially designed installation in the Gallery’s Project(s) Room.
