Description of the artwork «Vertical horizon (Obscuration #9)»

Latitude 43°21’31.53’
Longitude 77° 1’47.99’E

Obscuration "Vertical horizon" is the simplest of all, but nevertheless, software is for understanding the concept of the project.
In form it is enclosed in an elongated parallelepiped, which is installed in the natural landscape along the marked line of the horizon. After fixing space obscuration, as the artist explains: "depressurized and separated into two parts. The first is a narrow elongated shape, where the photographic image on the inner sides shall enter into controversial relations with the outside surfaces of the forming plane. The second part turns into a frame for photographs of obscuration in the landscape. Vertically mounted, the line of the horizon, squeezed into the space between the projection surface photographic image, intersecting with a flat heavy way, destroys the homogeneous optical space. The perception of tactile, optic faced with the internal and external surface, remove the disturbing outlines of the otherwise hidden landscape." This manipulation creates an image, vostrebuemim "gap of perception" – peripheral vision and visual disturbing at the same time. As a result of "Vertical horizon" is a visible axis, which declares obscuration as "monuments of concentration" different imperatives of the post-era.
