Imaginary Landscapes

Sharing its title with a slide installation, this book by Peter Miller
shows a collection of slides shot on 35mm film and later edited with
a 35mm editing machine. This editing machine was used to create
the artificial landscapes of the cinema, many of which are based on
and around the southwest region of the United States. Since this
machine can only make straight cuts, these "slide collages" contain
a single cut across the horizon, resulting in portrait-oriented
landscapes that present skies and grounds that only truly exist
in our imagination. Look closely and you can see the fine lines of
the tape splice. With a text by Fred Camper.
