Vertical Vistas contrasts the horizontality in conventional landscape, which orients imagery through left and right pans, or wide angle panoramas. The sculpture, photography, and video in Quick's exhibition scan the landscape vertically: in regards to ground, horizon, and sky. Operating sculpturally and functionally, Vertigraphy in 90˚ is fabricated from styrene, foam core, and lenses. Much like two large format cameras adjoined at 90˚, the apparatus was used in Death Valley to create the accompanying Vertigrams in the exhibition.
