Summary/Abstract: Chris Marker is a traveler who, since the very beginning of his artistic career, has visited the whole world with his camera: from China, through Siberia, Moscow, to Europe and South America. Along with the development of new technologies he also changed his tools of learning about reality, however, he did not leave his original interests in diversity, political situation or creating reality by media. His travels led him to the landscape of virtual reality, thus completing the range of beings and landscapes possible to see. Therefore, the article will deal with the issues connected with the correlation between landscape and technology which mediates it, with memory of landscape which is shaped by technology, a director and the landscape itself.
