The Discovered Landscapes installation consists of a three-part painting and eight sculptures. The canvases show a version of a classical landscape in which the horizon is a test strip for a wide-format solvent printer. The sculptures were cast in plaster from foam packaging for television sets, washing machines, electric razors and car speakers.
