  • Catalogue Essay

    For several years now, my work has been an exploration of the Sublime in the landscape; those sights whose boundless beauty is countervailed by feelings of fearlessness and powerlessness. If one spends time in the shadowy, military end of the Internet, one cannot be left with anything but conflicted feelings. The bewildering beauty of what human ingenuity can achieve when given endless resources collides with the appalling disposal of those assest on new and more brilliant ways to kill people.
    Simon Norfolk, "Full Spectrum Dominance: missiles, rockets, satellites in America",October 2008
