Objects in Mirror – The Imagination of the American Landscape

The road movie ‘Easy Rider’, Yellowstone National Park, Route 66, Stephen Shore’s ‘Uncommon Places’ or David Lynch’s ‘Twin Peaks’; these random names and places immediately fire the imagination. ‘Objects in Mirror’ investigates just how deeply the American landscape has penetrated our daily lives: in films, advertisement, books and music. Fact and fiction merge in a landscape that lends itself to being viewed through a frame, be it a car window or a television screen.
