Anita Cazzola: “Soft Mapping”
Soft Mapping draws upon contemporary perceptions of land in the Anthropocene, where digital maps and images of the earth mediate our connections to reality. The work positions human impact on land as a form of mark-making and considers how natural forces alter and absorb human actions as a form of resistance, reclamation and healing. Soft Mapping combines stitched and pieced textiles, video projection, cast surfaces and found forms to inhabit the intersection of geographical, human and digital spheres.
