A video with manipulated pictures of nature. Landscape painting has always been standing up for the chaste and pure. Nature can’t be reversed. I have used fragments of nature and manipulated these. The chosen pictures I felt I could change in such a way that a new “un­natural” devised nature arise, put together on some mentally and emotionally charged picturesque principles.
