Abstract or Summary

The aim of this research essay is to explore ways in which humans relate to the environment, specifically natural landscapes. It will discuss traditional dualistic Western notions of humankind’s relationship to nature and contrast this with indigenous perspectives. It will then argue that the instinctive pull we feel towards natural landscapes is analogous to our encounters with the sublime—something we might experience both in works of art and in nature. Finally the essay will examine the work of artists and filmmakers, noting some of the distinctive ways these practitioners explore the natural environment, and in doing so, reflect back to us our collective stories and psychological states.
