Surreal Scania (2006)

(2006) What makes places attractive? Can a wet and dirty road running through a barren field be appealing?
What are the common denominators between a heavy industrial harbour and a nature reserve?
In the project Surreal Scania these questions are examined.
Digital video is combined with GPS-technology to explore different visual representation techniques.
At the same time processes of place marketing and branding are surrealized. www.surrealscania.se
