Zenith is an imaginary point, located directly above a particular location. Perspective from there turns landscape into a pattern, creating an ideal objective order, also imaginary. However, this is a theory. Real perception comes out of empirical experience, filtered through subjective view.
Zenith is a body of work, collecting topographic view on various non-places. Stating idea behind this term, Marc Auge coined it to describe places without enough significance to be thinked of as proper places, but this also comes down to a subjective perception. As man alters landscape, it becomes an imprint of the perception of both the creator and the user, thus being an evidence of their actions and intentions that will eventually last. Even when in perfect order from up above, all places are subjected to a constant repurpose and reformulation. This is the subject of this story.
