The collection of landscapes explore the subject of change in roadsides (waysides), country scenery and infrastructure during the last couple of decades.
“Our environment is filled with elements that consciousness erases by turning them invisible. This is how entire invisible cityscapes and landscapes are formed. No one designs them or thinks about them in advance; invisible landscapes exist in complete coincidence, which allows us to interpret it easily. We then begin to deceive ourselves unconsciously. We see spaces the way we want to see them, not the way they really are. Some space for romanticizing it opens. We perceive buildings by ignoring construction scaffolding, and urban spaces by deleting the ongoing repair works. It becomes difficult to tell whether the cityscape or natural landscape shown to us is fiction or reality.”- Andrius Ropolas
