In Aesthetic Information / Acts of Mapping, artists Carolin Casey, Shelley Jacobson and Clare Hartley McLean offer discrete explorations of human marks upon the land. These works bring forgotten, invisible and ephemeral features to the surface for our consideration, with approaches spanning research, journey, photography and installation.

Clare Hartley McLean conjures hidden aspects of the land in Discrete Geometries through the esoteric practice of dowsing, a form of divining. Pondering the power of unseen agency and the Other, charting the space enables an investigation into indeterminate forces.
