This collection of recent and historical videos by six artists all use an electronically created image to depict various landscapes, geographies and architectures. These video simulacrum fracture and mediate the familiar—a sunset, a cabin in the woods, a mountainous terrain—into a disembodied space of memory and dream.

Apollo Shrapnel: Part 1
Tasman Richardon, 2000, video, 4 min
Sounds and images created entirely using a hacked Atari 2600 creating a scrollinggeometric world of diagonal lines, blips and bleeps.

Spiritual Intervention
Pierre-Luc Lapointe, 2009, video, 5 min
Record and translate…This act leads to a loss…A generation loss…

At the Heart of a Sparrow
Barry Doupé, 2006, video, 29 min
An episodic adventure highlighting the riff between mind and body. Through a series of animated narratives, role reversals and associations, images are driven out and stacked one on top another.

Through the Holes
Elizabeth vander zaag, 1982, video, 4 min
The process of using a macro lens to shoot the video screen enabled us to go beyond the primary content of television soap operas. By discovering the holes in the television screen grid, I find a freedom from the formal context of the medium.

Impossible Landscapes
Leslie Peters & Dara Gellman, 2006, video, 12 min
Composed entirely of found footage and manipulated found sound, Impossible Landscapes reveals a constantly shifting and fluid panorama of highly idealized and exaggerated terrains. Contemporary cinematic images of the natural landscape are envisioned as mutable sites of rapturous violence and ecstasy, where the ominous pervades beauty, benevolence is suspect, and narratives both real and imagined are intertwined.

Electronic Sunsets 21 & 25
Jane Wright, 1974, video, 8 min
Two selections from a series of over 40, eight minute video landscapes that represent a spiritual experience, meditational, and soothing.
