Greetings from Gibraltar foregrounds the sea as a geographical unit that both separates and links lands on either side, as well as a space in its own right with programs such as fishing, swimming, travelling, shipping, and conquering. The travel journey from south of Spain to northern Morocco began with a passion for sensory and aesthetic knowledge anchored by seascapes. The resultant 544 postcard-joiners construct a panoramic map of the Strait, as if the viewer wandered through encountering a series of detail views as well as constructing a total view of the landscape.
