A landscape gathers men and women, city and nature, history and phantasmagoria. It possesses at the same time something unnamable, sublime and something rather ordinary, fleeting at its apprehension, though generator of endless narratives, biographies and fables.

In the old far western movies, there was often this moment, when something emerged from nowhere, from far away. A reading moment of the  landscape,  where  distant elements became visible  as  they approached us,  little  by  little,  finally becoming Indians, the Seventh Cavalry Regiment  or  wild bisons. Evanescent figures blurred  by the distance and by light, they materialized as soon as our eyes were capable discerning the details, presences and realness. Nowadays, this dimension has been lost. No one arrives from afar.

Influenced by what we manage to see, how far our vision reaches and what comes before our very eyes, the landscape frames the world we see, the world we navigate through. Thinking landscape as a  shared fiction, Where the horizon moves charms the audience to experience the horizon as a playful panorama where  contemplation and imagination go  hand in hand with fable making and daily life sublime.

Through subtle transformations in the landscape Where the horizon moves rescues the poetic, yet ordinary aspect of the basic movement of coming towards a place. Here the spectators, as the watchmen of yesterday, struggle to define what they see in the horizon, these fleeting figures under the sun who become mankind, stories or facts.

A site specific project, in each city it involves the participation of local volunteers and the selection of a viewing point for a horizon.
