space, time and landscape


The landscape is a system made by several elements (cities, rivers, mountains, hills, infrastructures, etc.)
The connections among these elements changes the meaning and the
perception of the landscape and the surroundings.
The landscape is seen as a great disorder, leaving the freedom to
choose a personal meaning
Claude Lvi-Strauss, Tristes Tropiques, 1955

connections
The landscape is not a natural data, but a cultural construction.
Its aspect depends from the culture that shapes it. It could have differnt
ways of see it, tells it, represent it.
The landscape is made by the connections among its elements

time
different type of time makes different type of landscape
A landscape description, bringing inside a certain amount of temporality, is always a tale: theres somebody in movement, that describes a
moving landscape, and each element of the landscape is loaded with of
its temporality, or we might say it could be described in a different kind
of present and future.
I. Calvino

John Constable, the hay wain, 1821

Thomas Hearne, the landscape, 1794
