Noriko Furunishi’s Landscapes series present otherworldly depictions of deserts, mountains, and river beds created through a combination of traditional and digital photographic techniques. Furunishi took the source photographs near Death Valley, California, using a 4 x 5 viewfinder camera. She photographed several different locations, each from multiple angles and positions, and scanned these negatives into a computer, using the digital files to compose and collage multiple views. Featured in the ICA exhibition Super Vision, the photograph’s disorienting, dreamlike view hints at familiar terrain, yet also suggests another dimension beyond our sight or time.
