Folded Force – Large paper panels containing part hidden and disrupted drawings are folded to allow the paper and drawing to flow in new ways.
The shapes of the paper forms are in direct response to the Hodograms produced by GeoPhysics department at Keele University. Hodograms are visualisations of the sonic recordings taken during monitoring of the salt mine landscape under Cheshire. Subsidence from former mining and current flowing brine rivers are recorded and plotted over 4 dimensions creating beautiful digital maps of unheard sonic traces in space and time.
Folded Force brings together various ways of responding to and mapping the landscape, layering different forms of interpretation into the strata of the artwork and challenging the relative legibility of geophysics, scientific data, and creative practice. These pieces specifically explore what happens when unheard traces of sound and unseen views occupy the same space?
