Jane Prophet’s ‘Decoy’ was a groundbreaking digital art work in which images of the grounds of iconic British country houses were overlaid with subtly evolving computer-generated landscapes, highlighting both the artificiality of these apparently natural vistas, and the alternative ways in which nature might have transformed the scene over time. Reflecting on the history and politics of landscape design, and the extent to which it was informed by the conventions of classical painting, the book features essays by Sophie Howarth and Steven Bode, and an interview with the artist by Simon Willmoth.
