In Camera Batavia the landscape is compressed to a total experience. High up in a tower your perception bends into a total experience. Climbing the stairs, elevating from a sheep to a bird’s-eye perspective, you circle through the qualities of the landscape. Sitting beneath the convex mirror you are able to look in all directions at the same time.
Camera Batavia is an invitation to witness yourself in the totality of space.
