“An object lacking data has little or no scientific significance, but an object associated with data is a potential source of knowledge about the world and is, thereby, an object of scientific significance”
Words of an unknown geologist.
A seven-day residency project at BLW resulted in re-appropriated image material, cryptic geological data and suggestion of alternative histories. Scientific records were abstracted and adapted into various groupings and processed within a larger and more complex collection of findings; finally presented as a set of object-based studies.
