Meg Roussos’ photo-based art practice investigates what it means to physically experience the landscape. Cultivated from 10 years spent exploring the wilderness – she has hiked over 8,000 miles and completed three major U.S. long distance hiking trails – her work queries the landscape and her place within it. Roussos uses photography in the traditional sense to yield a picture, and also as a means to document her site-responsive installations and performances. Her work readily blurs documentation with fantasy and allows for a playful humor amidst the exigencies wrought by climate change. While excavating the contradictions in our mediated experience of nature, Roussos maintains a deeply romantic belief in our spiritual connection with the natural environment and the possibility for beauty and hope to prevail.
