On the Rocks

By Dan Rule

Cave is an experimental thought about a cave made up of many images of caves, it has no access in or out.
This video collage 'Cave' is fabricated from YouTube videos, online photos, nature desktop wallpapers, animation and some 'real life' shooting. It was made without visiting anyplace worth seeing. Using the visual conventions of landscape painters throughout time, the surreal combinations emphasize and subvert our idealized visions of particular landscapes. The Cave, as an object-lesson, is made into a place both pastoral and unsettling.
