Truthing Gap

Lee, Rona (2009) Truthing Gap. [Show/Exhibition]

Oceanographic survey offers no grounding in questions of representation, such as mapping as an expression of power, or inter-subjective relations between observer and observed. Existing practice involves the reprocessing of sonar data to create drained and illuminated, photorealistic, virtual models, over which the disembodied eye may freely roam.

Situated and ‘situationist’, Truthing Gap employed conjectural understanding, participant observation (work with geophysical modelling/mapping software and underwater vehicles/cameras), performative experiments and interventions, alongside alternative modes of data capture and making tactile cartographies, to address the role of representational vocabularies in configuring human/non-human relations and the capacity of contemporary artistic practice to re-think dominant environmental imaginaries.

Additional Information: This two-year Leverhulme Trust funded study/residency, within the Marine Geoscience Group at the world leading National Oceanography Centre, investigated methods of mapping the deep-seabed (the largest, least accessible/understood environment on the planet), extending Lee’s on-going enquiry into water as a material and cultural locus
