Question set 1

1.What defines a landscape?

A natural area where humans have not developed

2. What 4 key words would you use to describe a landscape?

Beautiful, wild, oxygen, colour

3.The landscape is described as a product of human consumption, driven by capitalism, for profitability and production- What are your thoughts?

I would think landscape is an area untouched or not interfered with by touch. However, once thinking about this more, industries do take over nature or the landscape for profit.

4.“There is a shift in attitudes and behaviours towards the natural world”  What are your thoughts on this statement?

Develop more protected areas. Change the way we mass-produce and create awareness where possible.

  • man made landscape
