Interventions are a series of photomontages from Michael Jantzen that are created with images of some of his built and unbuilt structures and sculptures. These images are superimposed into various real-world landscapes in order to inspire surreal stories in the minds of the viewers, about what these things are, and how they got there.

Often images of people and animals are added to the photo collages (juxtaposed to the structures) in order to amplify the surreal nature of the stories.

Jantzen hopes that the incorporation of images of his original structures into the real world landscapes will help to create unique photomontages.
