Seismic Field examines the relationship between geophysical forms and consciousness. Geurts intervenes the processes of scanning, polaroid photography and 3d mapping as site actions, disrupting the form and colour field, blurring the lines between geology and technological praxis. The works investigate seismic phenomena and cultural context, amplifying their perceptual and physical thresholds. Seismic Field draws together site and conceptual works from diverse locations around the world, from the edge of tectonic plates colliding in Italy, exposed faultlines from Bendigo, to meridians and time zones shaped by geopolitical forces. This exhibition also navigates archaeological objects that have been forged in the cultural strata. The works operate as abstract measuring propositions, exploring these forces physically and symbolically.
