What you see is documentation of performative environmental works from my walk during 78 days across Europe from South England to Kosovo in the summer of 1999 disguised as a landscape painter. Together with Plein-Air I-V, these mixed media installations of photography, video, found material, collage, sculpture and performance are extensions of events, chance and spontaneous situations.
