Re-Ocular Environment’s is a radical intervention into the landscape which explores centration through the presence of ocularcentrism of three natural phenomena’s, sky, sunlight and the ‘natural’ landscape. The concept of this project is constructed upon the very notion of taking an object of a person’s perception away from them, and slowly exposing them back to these aspects as a meaning of re-appreciation. Situated in a dormant stratovolcano, Re-Ocular Environment heightens the question of distinction between interiority and exteriority through the increased and decreased atmospheric pressure. This project identifies the need of re-defining how one considers themselves within the environment, as the detachment to nature is only going to escalate, where images take on their own life, divorced from our former notions of the real.
