Stephen Cornford: Four Million Tonnes per Annum

February 16 - March 23, 2024

Pound Arts, Corsham

Stephen Cornford: Four Million Tonnes per Annum exhibition.

This solo exhibition takes the rate of limestone extraction in North East Somerset as its title. The work considers the relationship between technology and landscape, how landscapes become technologised as infrastructures for industry. By combining timelapse infrared video of disused quarries across the South West with satellite images of phytoplankton blooms in the Arctic Ocean, this new installation addresses the impact of human activity on the planetary carbon cycle.
