Experience in Landscape #2

2. Harvey Williams Cushing 1869-1939
The human brain does not work as a processor of information, but as a creator of stable domains. Despite us not being mechanisms of collection, we do try to control our own reality. We can easily be conscientious that our relation to the land involves a constant flow of perceptual phenomenon (vision stimuli, audition, tact…), as well as attitude, posture, emotion, attention, social context, memory, etc. All this mechanisms of experience are concurrent. They are actively and accordingly dimensioned, continually reforming imagery.

Landscape has no definite place or time, nor a specific attributed dimension; it is a unique, yet ever-changing performance, which is brought into evidence in a spacetime interval of experience.

The mechanisms that are involved in the fabrication of landscape are therefore the same that are collaborating on defining the different possibilities of experience: the ones able to cultivate different kinds of scape. They control this plot in an operative way, considering for that purpose occult speculative processes (such as imagination or memory) as important as more commonly identifiable and categorizable variants (for example, sensory perception or positioning). They are naturally occasionally triggered, responding to stimulus and a demand for appropriation.
