Abstract

Social anthropologist Tim Ingold described landscape in terms of practical activity, writing that the world becomes a meaningful environment only by being inhabited. The landscape is not strictly “nature” in the sense of an external, distanced world, but is any lived-in environment made up of human perception. The aim of this video is to show how humans perceive and interact with their world in order to live in it—how the landscape is an everyday project of dwelling.
