[Attempts to]Understand Land
Intermedia, CCA, Glasgow
Thom Walker has created a set of works based on land movement and formation. Developing from recent works (Attempts to) Understand Land explores the research of scientists from the early to mid 20th Century whom began to put forth the theory of Continental Drift and latterly Plate Tectonics. The work for the exhibition have been adapted and developed out of studying the visual evidence and data that was produced to back up these theories, especially focussing on the ocean floor scanning of the magnetism of the sea bed.
The show includes a large scale wall drawing made across the whole space shown alongside new etchings.
