Peter Whittenberger – I Believe We Are Lost – United States
Set in the not-too-distant future, I Believe We Are Lost follows two figures exploring a perpetually burning landscape. Decimated by fires in a post-water environment, the terrain struggles to sustain wildlife in a constantly degraded atmosphere. The absence of all natural presence begins to define the new world.
Peter Whittenberger is an interdisciplinary artist whose work explores how the nature of the landscape serves as a continuous network of time and history, containing the data of all Earth’s species. Growing up in Eastern Montana, Whittenberger received his BFA from the University of Montana, Missoula and his MFA from the University of Nevada, Reno.
