In his new exhibition Plein Air, Mark Tribe explores the aesthetics of the aerial perspective in landscape photography through the virtual lens of computer simulation. Unlike other kinds of landscape pictures, aerial landscapes do not reproduce our “natural” terrestrial point of view. There is no ground underfoot and often no horizon line. In this exhibition, Tribe makes pictures of a computer-generated world in which land appears distant, almost foreign. Plein Air alters our perceptions, presenting landscapes from a “drone’s eye view,” a machinic perspective that is playing an increasingly important role in contemporary culture.
