Work from his oeuvre.

Short texts for each project follow – but the projects presented here are three of O’Brien’s interpretations on the function and legacy of the landscape.

“Farms at the End of Winter – This short animation is inspired by looking out the window during lengthy bus trips I made between Cincinnati and Chicago.

The Wanderer – This video game work explores the relationship between Romanticism and contemporary digital art. You play as the ghost of Romanticism’s past, drifting through a purgatory built from notable paintings by Caspar David Friedrick.

Three Ways of Evaluating Landscape as a Work of Art – This video looks at landscape in three different ways: silently, narrated, and loudly.” – Nicholas O’Brien
