    PP #S006.201PP #S007.201 are computer-generated animations and latest iterations of Quayola’s ongoing project Pleasant PlacesPleasant Places derives its name from the first series of landscape prints produced in Holland in the seventeenth century. Based on 3D-scanned natural scenery in southern France, the animations consist of both hyper-realistic and highly interpretative computer-generated imagery. With high-resolution, laser-scanning technology and computer-simulations, PP #S006.201 & PP #S007.201 challenge the photographic image and propose alternative modes of vision and synthesis: familiar landscapes are transformed into dense and impenetrable masses of geometries. 

    The landscape serves as a point of departure, paying homage to the tradition of landscape painting in Western art, while also alluding to a pivotal moment within its history when representation began to verge on abstraction.
