Despite their invention to serve people, industrial infrastructures do not naturally fit with peopled environments.

They are densifications of resources that disrupt the patterns of comfortable urban fabrics. Landing is an approach towards re-choreographing the unique mis-fits and frictions created by the industrialization of the landscape to invent new engagements between people, industry, and the city. This lecture, "Landing - Industry in the Structure of Places", will review a series of investigations and installations undertaken by Landing Studio to unearth and re-initiate the relationship of industrial infrastructure to the city.

The chromatic has a strange duplicity and if I may be permitted such language among ourselves: a kind of double hermaphroditism. a strange claiming, connecting, mingling, neutralizing, nullifying, etc., and furthermore a demand on physiological, pathological, and aesthetical effects which remains frightening…            

-Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, A Theory of Colours, 1810

With a significantly slower life than images constructed by photojournalism, images in the artworld can consider problematic imagery from an oblique angle that strategically allows for a different temporality of seeing.
