Artscapes attempts to show how the artificial landscape produced by artists in collaboration with architects and landscape architects can alter the nature of a place, transforming it into a location capable of establishing a more intense dialogue with the user. The sensibility of these artists selects, shapes and colonizes the landscape in the reformulation of an ecological consciousness that shifts our attention of its constituent objects towards an awareness and understanding of emerging relationships.
