Terra Incognita and Uncanny Territory by Natascha Seideneck: Terra Incognita and Uncanny Territory employ experimental processes in imaging to metaphorically and literally narrate the Anthropocene Age. Using water as both material and subject to create fictional typographies of earth and bodies of water – melting ice, burning water, undiscovered planets and severe weather — Uncanny Territory creates an active dialog about ecological disasters on our planet. The work implies our present ecological imperialism by portraying photography’s relationship to scientific ‘seeing’ by emulating satellite, microscopic and telescopic perspectives.
