The Terrain Below the Sediments

Below the Sediments

2002 -2018

Digital print onto brushed metal with lazer cutouts

 560 x 1 200mm, Edition 5

The collision and collusion of the two ‘languages’ of ‘art’ and  ‘science’  are brought together in Below the Sediments to reveal their different epistemological strategies. The first register is a depiction of a karoo landscape in which over two thirds of the image depicts the earth below. The second register is from the realm of science and engineering. Diagrammatic images of horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing create the hard edge ‘pipes’. The karoo soil depicted on the front panels has literally been cut away to create the scientifically ordered, ‘pipes’ laid below the ground to extract gas from below the surface of the earth.
