• Landscape as a represented and a presented space, is both a real place and its simulacrum.
• Landscape as an environment, whose historical formation circumscribed by European imperialism, is where we either find or lose ourselves.
• Landscape as a wounded space, devastated by our ‘ecological crisis of reason’ promotes the genocide it betrays.
• Landscape as a cultural medium, naturalises its ideological construction as if it were inevitable and ‘natural’.
• Landscape thus becomes a principle means of enlisting ‘Nature’ in the legitimation of the superiority of modernity.
The task for settler culture, is the bringing into question these contradictions and ambiguity.
