Pocket Desert with Richard E. Prince

Landscape as Muse
S1:Ep924 mins2005

In the Pocket Desert, just outside of Osoyoss in southern British Columbia, we join sculptor Richard Prince. He explains how he sees the landscape as if it is something that has been intentionally sculpted. He also shares some of his existential philosophy and how it relates to his interest in the landscape.

His current works includes aspects of precise scientific instruments. To demonstrate this, we follow him to Anarchist Mountain. During sunset, then again at sunrise he demonstrates his viewing machines for viewing the evening star and the morning star. While not true telescopes, the projects are admittedly not of science, but rather for the poetry of visual art.
