©“Made on an undeveloped 0.75-hectare piece of family land, Attempts maps out a survey into the notion of landownership. Through collecting, containing and marking different pieces of the landscape the project explores the various geographical and topographical elements found within the lot. The apparently futile constructions depicted in the photographs aim to visualise and question the often illogical commodification of nature and the ownership of something that exists in a constant state of flux.”
