The act of making images is in itself a way of living life for Danish artist Lotte Fløe Christensen. The camera and the act of constructing and making an image is an essential approach to the world in search of an understanding of her place in it. She works as a visual philosopher with photography and nature to construct images that explore existential issues. She enters the landscape using herself as a measuring tool, gently pulls plants through paper to isolate them from their natural environment, or brings back parts of nature to her outdoor studio to build fragile constructions. In line with the tradition of representing landscape in art history, in her work, nature acts as a projection screen for inner human dilemmas.
