A Collapsed Distinction 

A Collapsed Distinction, is a multi-channel video and sound installation, that is grounded in a
consideration of the contradictory ways in which militarism, nationalism and colonial power are
embedded in and made invisible through the aesthetics of the rural English Landscape. The work
is concerned with drawing connections between historic and contemporary aesthetics, taking root
in a piece of 18th Century landscape architecture called a HaHa, a boundary designed to
seamlessly tie two landscapes together whilst maintaining a clear division between them.
