Tracy Hill

The intersection between our digital and aesthetic worlds is where Hill situates her art works: a hybrid space where technological control meets emotion and memory of the human experience of Landscape.

Perceptions of mapping, digital navigation and how we encounter our urban and rural spaces connect with a modern obsession for locating, ordering and fragmenting our experiences. Hill considers that in order to reconnect with ideas of place we must first reconnect with the aesthetic; understand the experience, knowledge and memory of the physical encounter.

Through combinations of print, installation and hand drawn imagery Hill invites a new perspective to these landscapes.
Disrupted and reimagined images create an opportunity to explore what is beyond a 2d surface becoming a visualisation of the point where our physical and digital worlds overlap, the edge between our world and how we feel to be part of it.

Disrupted and reimagined Hill’s images require a visual and cognitive attention intrinsic to walking occupying the place where our digital and physical worlds overlap.
