16x20 (each) // Grid of 9 // Archival Pigment Prints Made from Medium Format Negatives, GPS Data Logged from Anchored Tall Ship

 

A series of drawings made from GPS data points collected in Svalbard while sailing aboard an ice-class Tall Ship. Each network of dense, overlapping lines is a record of the ship's natural movements in the water while tethered to its dropped anchor—using the ship itself to make the drawing. This method of mark-making calls to mind the esoteric art of scrying. With a crystal tied to a string, a practitioner could gently hover the crystal's point over a map until it divined the unknown location of your desire. With GPS in hand, the ship can be seen to move in a similar quality to the crystal. Yet, it never stops moving. A symptom of technological preference in lieu of clairvoyant promise. With all the location data points one would need, you always know where you are—there is nothing to find—Data is the New Divine.
