The panorama of a beautiful mountain landscape, with cloudless sky, a lake that meanders between the mountain ranges and a view of the interior of Switzerland, reformulated. I used the idyllic Hoch-Ybrig motif for an illustrative, connoted and abstracted translation. In a further step, surreal experiments with illustration have emerged. The project includes three image series based on the original photography.

In addition to the areal conversions, I have placed the focus on lines in reference to elevation contours. Lines and mountains go well together for some inexplicable reason!

If you distort the lines a bit, you get three-dimensional mountains, how awesome!
In this step, the photography of the mountain landscape is reduced to the minimum, but without losing its recognition value. What remains are the bars of the barrier.
