| Nature meets Technology—in this important new publication, spanning more than two decades of Holdsworth's innovative practice
Mapping the Limits of Space surveys English artist Dan Holdsworth’s 20-year career. Since 1996 Holdsworth has explored the “extreme” territories that characterise humans’ changing relationship to the ‘natural’ world in the Anthropocene. The volume also reveals Holdsworth’s (*1974) most recent body of work. Since 2012 the artist has worked with academic geologists to map the exact contours of Alpine glaciers, using drones, lasers, photography, and high-end software used by the military and academy. We encounter millions of points in space, each millimetre-perfect, that plot the outline of a changing landscape. Produced in collaboration with the Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art, the publication offers new insights into Holdsworth’s innovative practice.
