The Layered Suburbs
“Landscape Permutations” is a photographic series by David Semeniuk.
Notes about the project by the artist (from Semeniuk’s website):
Landscape Permutations is a series of imaginative recombinations of specific sites within my hometown – Red Deer, Alberta. In it, I investigate the relationship between a place and the specific sites that make up its (sub)urban landscape. I began this series by asking, what does it mean when different sites, at particular points in time that they are photographed, can easily substitute for the same place? Do we lose the specificity of the site, or does the repetition of these urban elements – pulled together – illuminate something about the specificity of place? While these images produce new spaces, they nevertheless feel eerily familiar.
