Tinka Pittoors

Plastic Territory – Urbicide

Plastic Territory - Urbicide, filmstill
Tinka creates 'landscape models', constructed from a variety of different materials. Typical of this landscape is the huge scale confusion caused by the combination of several elements. The miniature landscapes are photographed and printed on a very large size, suggesting a crack in reality. They become landscapes through which you can travel anywhere but eventually never arrive at the destination. It refers to the nineteenth century romantic ideal landscape, which we still see in landscapes, but as an illusion. In FLACC Tinka takes it one step further via filming the maquetes instead of using photography to increase the illusion of the landscape, add a notion of time and to add sound. The movement in the film also implies a greater involvement of the viewer.
