In the Shadow of Colossus
In the Shadow of Colossus explores areas where land has been altered from its natural state to a synthetic beauty, due to the presence of uninhabited dams. Mixing mountains with concrete structures holding back billions of litres of water invites us to walk through dangerous paths. These reservoirs can act as metaphors for other parts of the world where oppressive human development creates perceptual confusion. A water current becomes slow rather than fast, its noise is replaced by the volts of energy going through the thick cables, the noise of wind pressure against the barrier and vegetation growing in between the concrete fences. It becomes a dramatic beautiful scene.
