This project explores one aspect of the Everyday in rural and semi-rural landscapes: the visible, physical signs of invisible powers on which we depend, electricity and electro-magnetic waves. In cities these phenomena operate instantaneously in ways that can seem almost magical, but the sources of technology that allow unprecedented convenience, knowledge and communication are obsolete, dirty, dangerous and aesthetically unpopular - or simply need large empty spaces for their structures and security. They tend to be out of sight and out of mind, often in deprived rural areas in desperate need of jobs. This series aims to document those structures and areas via a mostly traditionally landscape approach.
