Getting Lost and Road Series (05-07)

Getting Lost consists of a series of photographs that captured Kögelsberger’s failed attempts at getting herself lost in landscapes that represent idealised notions of untouched wilderness. The work was shot using the light of distress flares in a performative interaction with the landscape and as a marker for the of the impossibility of the notion of untouched wilderness. Getting Lost was developed in parallel to the Road Series, a series of long exposure night photographs where the lights from the cars create as calligraphy through the landscape, framing it in an interaction suggestive of Land Art produced in the region.
