Build your own landscape (2011) refers to video tutorials which can be found in hardware stores but gives the technical explanations on how to build an American landscape. It explains four desperate attempts to build different ways to see the American landscape through four theoretical points of view (the private property perspective, the Beat Generation perspective, the Hollywood perspective and the National Park perspective for political purposes).

This was made during a residency program in Marfa, Texas, USA in April 2011.
