Restoration

In his series "Restoration”, Halso draws attention to the irony of man’s relationship to nature, the irony in the belief that technology is the pathway to solving problems that are due to human neglect. In building fictive restoration sites, and placing scaffolding within the landscape, it is the nature that is "under repair”, not buildings. Such scaffolding creates a new geometrical space that ultimately conquers and suffocates the natural landscape. Halso’s use of artificial lighting and man-made scaffolding detaches the nature from everyday life, emphasizing the absurdity of this "solution”.
