Following on from previous work in our print window - MEASURING STATES #1–#2, artist TRACY HILL presents new sculptural drawing work in our main window space ahead of POROSITY, her upcoming residency at AirSpace in April/May this year.

FOLDED FORCE consists of new experimental paper works, where large paper panels containing part hidden and disrupted drawings are folded to allow the paper and drawing to flow with new perspectives.

The shapes of the paper forms are formed in direct response to Hodogram visualisations of captured sonic recordings of subterranean Cheshire. Subsidence from former mining and current flowing brine rivers are recorded and plotted over 4 dimensions creating beautiful digital maps of unheard sonic traces in space and time.

Folded Force brings together various ways of responding to and mapping the landscape, layering different forms of interpretation into the strata of the artwork and challenging the relative legibility of geophysics, scientific data, and creative practice. These pieces specifically explore what happens when unheard traces of sound and unseen views occupy the same space?

TRACY HILL was born in Birmingham and studied Fine Art at Bournville School of Art, Birmingham, Sheffield Hallam University and The University of Central Lancashire, Preston.

Hill’s cross-disciplinary practice investigates and reconsiders the relationship between our developing digital capabilities and the aesthetics of the traditional hand created mark.
