In preparation for the drawings a series of  full-colour digital collages was made in order to test the various landscapes with the portraits; as well as the scale and intersection with the face. 

The paintings are by Carl Blechen, Gustav Carus, Johan Christian Dahl 

Casper David Friedrich, Joseph Anton Koch and Karl Schinkel. The titles come from Goethe’s novels and plays.

After the installation of the drawings and wallpaper a limited edition box set was made of all of the collages as giclée prints in a hand-made half-clamshell box.  Each print is presented in a folder tabbed to represent a directory.
