Stephen Cornford: Four Million Tons Per Annum

16 Feb - 23 Mar @ The Pound Arts Centre [ Art & Design ]

Stephen Cornford: Four Million Tons Per Annum

Running from 16 February – 23 March.

This exhibition takes as its title the rate of limestone extraction in North East Somerset. Cornford’s work considers the relationship between technology and landscape, how landscapes become technologised as infrastructures for industry. By combining timelapse videos 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.

Join us for the Exhibition Opening Event on Thursday 15 February, 6.30pm

We will also be hosting a book launch event for Stephen’s first artist book Petrified Media on Thursday 29 February.
