ABSTRACT

This empirical case study contributes to re-thinking the existential division between landscape considered as representational within new cultural geography and landscape considered as non-representational within post-new cultural geography. Specifically, this study focuses on a change to the apparent form of a feng-shui landscape in relation to four collective ancestors’ tombs located near a local-lineage-based village in South Korea, before and after a national reforestation project in the 1970s, to explore how the ontological dualism involved in apprehending this feng-shui landscape has been resolved in the villagers’ lived experiences of this landscape. In doing so, this paper attempts to empirically show that, in the lived experiences of human agents, the representational and the non-representational are inseparably interrelated.
