The works presented within this project report revolved around my own interactions and daily observations of the environment and landscape I occupy. Using printmaking, photographs, recorded audio material, and insights gleaned from visiting surrounding locations in Southern California, I focused on details of "nature" in our culture, elements that are mostly in the background which are often overlooked but constitute the "natural" in urban settings. My Master of Fine Arts Project Exhibition, The Magic Hour, invited the constructs of natural landscapes to be investigated by manipulating, highlighting and isolating imagery and objects as seen and observed from surrounding environments. Integrating and exaggerating the ideas of faux nature alongside my real experiences of nature brings light to their coexistence. Each work presented a questioning of landscape and the realities of how the image or object came to formation, whether it was a direct representation through a photograph or construction through the hand.
