  • 《伪夜》探讨了在风景中行走的表象与升华。夜间小路的图像是我对长距离徒步旅行经验的构建反映。我以这种方式拍摄小径,来反映在长距离徒步旅行中短暂的冥想时刻。虽然我是在白天拍摄的,但这种效果是为了模仿夜晚。这种方式参考了过去在白天制作夜景的西部老电影。照片与传统剧团在意象上嬉戏,就像背后的人物通过缺席而存在,既邀请,但又对人们去到森林的边缘作出警告。
      
      梅格·鲁索斯是一位完成了美国三大长距离徒步旅行路线的艺术家,累计徒步超过8000英里。鲁索斯探究的是关于亲身体验景观有何意义的对话。她的艺术实践是在野外的个人经历中培养出来的。她的工作涉及多个领域,让她的想法以传统图像、摄影艺术家书籍、土地艺术记录或视频的形式呈现出来。
      Pseudo night explores the representation and sublimation of walking in the landscape. The images of the trails at night are a constructed reflection of my experience of long distance hiking. I photographed the trails in this way to reflect the brief moments of meditation that occur during long distance hikes. Although I photographed during the day, this effect is intended to mimic the night. This approach references old western films that used to produce night scenes during the day. The photographs frolic with the traditional troupe in imagery, as if the characters behind them exist through absence, both inviting, yet warning people to go to the edge of the forest.
