Forgotten Landscape is a permanent video installation designed specifically for the new Hyatt Denver Convention Center Hotel in downtown Denver. The installation consists of a custom panoramic nine-video flatscreen configuration built into the Hotel architecture displaying High Definition video content. The installation is located in the Porte Cochere area to the side of the hotel's entrances on 15th Street, and is visible from outside the hotel.
The thirty-seven minute film loop displayed on the video screens explores the spectrum of moods and textures experienced in the obscure corners of the Colorado landscape - areas often overlooked, yet are quintessentially Colorado. A variety of environments - dry grassy plains, plowed fields, an abandoned farmhouse, mountain meadows, creeks and canyons - are associatively composed together to form a new dynamic and creative geography. Experimental techniques are used in the film to represent the act of seeing and recognizing the figurative world, as images emerge from- and dissolve into overexposed shots.
In its location at the Denver Convention Center Hotel, Forgotten Landscape offers visitors to the hotel a unique experience of the outlying Colorado landscape.
Forgotten Landscape was shot in 2005 on 16mm and Super 8mm film and edited in High Definition video.
