Mowing the Lawn           [ALL]
Exhibition Tenderpixel Gallery (www.tenderpixel.com) London May 13– June 22, 2010
New drawings by Jeremy Wood created with GPS and a riding lawnmower. The Mowing the Lawn exhibition
charts the artist's movements over several seasons of mowing. Wood makes use of his unique GPS data stream by
precisely plotting his time, date and position coordinates to reveal an evolving exploration of travel.

"Mowing the lawn is synonymous with suburban existence. It is a task so habitual and perfunctory that it seems unlikely as artistic subject matter.
However, it is precisely this everyday quality of lawn maintenance that enables Jeremy Wood to imbue it with significance by newly exploring it with GPS"
Kelly Nosari, Daily Serving http://dailyserving.com/2010/06/jeremy-wood-mowing-the-lawn
"Wood’s performative rituals are data visualized as densely packed line drawings and animations. Having spent ten years developing a system for tracking and translating his everyday movements,
the resulting pieces are one part drawing, one part diary and one part critique of the technological system’s accuracy/inaccuracy and how that intervention enables/limits our perception of the spatio-temporal."
