In Establishing Eden, Broersen & Lukács focus on the establishing shot: the moment a landscape is identified and becomes one of the main protagonists. In blockbusters like Avatar and the Lord of the Rings films these shots have been used to capture and confiscate New Zealand to construct it as a new Eden. Broersen & Lukács recreate these shots and show this Eden as a series of flat images, creating an apparent reality, an illusion that just as easily falls together as apart.
