Kim Miskowicz

"...Each artist in a relay that I would like to participare would draw one's daily commute along with a drawing of landscape that is an escape from their daily commute..."



New York City United States of America
Pamela Enz

Multi-media artist using her own text and lines of others that both haunt and inspire as the foundation for large collage that she uses as backdrop to her performance work even as they stand alone as works of art.

"...There is no surface to the world. Which means to me much of  what is described as memes - we are all exchanging bits of information wordlessly. More than just brain info I feel we exchange deeper wordless emotions, spiritual truths that bind and lift humanity as a whole higher into a non physical but truer plane..."



London United Kingdom
Marianne Holm Hansen

Marianne (born in Denmark, based in London) works across media to consider how we come to experience things as we do. With a focus on the role of memory within interpretation, she considers how experiences are formed -- and may be re-formed -- through system, image and/or language.

"Playing the Panorama gives me the opportunity to further explore how landscape informs experience and how experience, in turn, underpins our perception of landscape.  In attempting to simultaneously draw a site and its experience,  I’ll consider diverse visual systems and hope to find new ways of relaying site-specific information and understandings.”

One can find recognizable objects and symbols in them, which denote obvious meanings. These can lead the viewer to find hidden messages..."

Seoul South Korea

"... I think that one space can be defined by show characters of around of the space.
So, if I can participate in the program I will draw trees lining a street, roads and river, etc in Seoul without buildings. Korea traditional painters walked the land to drew their landscape, so they didn't use perspective drawing method, they use multiple vanishing points. I think, this drawing method is the most attractive element in Korea traditional drawings..."

This is a concept page. I used your application to write the text about your panorama. If you want to correct, add or write a different text, feel free to mail me. Also I need a picture that tells something about your travelogue, theme, location, or way of working. If you have something for this, please mail it to me. When completed, this page will be used to launch the start of all the panoramas. It should tell something about the different artistic perspectives of all the artists and their surroundings.
