Pursuing Nature

Tess Payne

1991, 20:00 minutes, colour, English


"Pursuing Nature" aims to expose both the changing face of nature, and its renewed capitalization through commercials and tourism. From the rugged and escapist, to its current perception as fragile and threatened, the romantic "distance" between tourist and landscape is highlighted. As born-again tourists, our indifference to nature remains.
