This exhibition looks at our relationship with the city’s rivers and their individual identity, as well as the language we use to describe and quantify them, it seeks to understand them both experientially and through information provided by software used to monitor and manage the waterways.  Some of the work in production has moved between matter and digital several times; the aim being to most clearly explore the city’s three watery veins, whilst conversely digital glitches picked up during this un-subjective process have been embraced as a gesture to the organic subject that it describes.  In-flux river data suspended and domesticated on embroidered fabric, half-inch symbols used as guides on OS maps enlarged and elevated, both flotsam and jetsam carried down river and buildings and wildlife reflected in the water that laps the banks indicate how we see the rivers and how they see us.

This new body of work has been generated by a period of recent research by boat and working with materials and machinery at FabLab, CSAD.

With thanks to the FabLab team, Maggie Cullinane and Nigel Williams at CSAD and the Cardiff Harbour Authority for all their kind support on this project.

 

Johana will be in the space to discuss the work on Saturday 18.02.17 and Saturday 04.03.17
