Landscape User Interface

By combining landscape painting with user interface icons, I hope to communicate how our interaction with the natural world has become mediated by screens. These paintings point to how the depiction of the natural world includes overlaying understood stories of choice, outcome, and functionality symbolized by the user interface icons. 

Interestingly, I discovered that these universal symbols are so compelling that viewers tried to interact with the UI icons when seeing my art on a screen. I believe this reveals how omnipresent screens are as our primary window for seeing and knowing about the world.
