In this thesis Macro Landscapes, I take you on a journey through my mind and my lens. What do I make and what is the common ground in what I have been producing in recent years? I examine my own work and the work of other artists through case studies and build a framework for my own methodology. I approach my work and the work of others in a materialist way, by which I mean, I examine each step taken to make a work; to understand myself and what I do.

== Macro Landscapes ==

Developing a method for my own practice


Introduction

In this thesis Macro Landscapes, I take you on a journey through my mind and my lens. What do I make and what is the common ground in what I have been producing in recent years? I examine my own work and the work of other artists through case studies and build a framework for my own methodology. I approach my work and the work of others in a materialist way, by which I mean, I examine each step taken to make a work; to understand myself and what I do.

Chapter 1

I introduce what I make; how I make it and why I make it and set out an analysis of my work Skaftafall (2021).

Chapter 2

I explore the film Nightfall by James Benning (2012) and the video work Everything and More (2015) by Rachel Rose. I discuss their methodologies in relation to my own.

Chapter 3

I distill a method out of the works I have discussed so far. I further discuss the development of a method for the pre-production, production, and postproduction of my work.

Conclusion

I look at how I can use this methodology in the development of new work, and I set out questions for further research.

A personal report on my research and practice

Introduction:

How do I bring the documentary narrative together with my 'macro landscapes'?

or

synthesising documentary narrative and 'macro lansdscapes'

here you need to define terms: What do you mean by 'documentary narrative' What do you mean by macro landscape?

Method: bring together all the written material on your practice while you have been working here- descriptions of things you have made; diary entries &c
