Fossil Ocean Floor

Installation by Jonathan Parsons

Fossil Ocean Floor will be a monumental installation in farmland adjacent to the Great Western Railway near Dorking. The work will be viewable from 15 June – 31 August 2018. It can be viewed from the carriage road at Ranmore Common, the train from West Dorking and the footpath across Milton Court Farm.

This work is the first installation in Jonathan Parsons project Horizons – a series of site-specific interventions in the chalk landscape of the northern Surrey Hills. The works use the colour white, which is inspired by ancient chalk hill figures and is visible from a far distance. Installations, text pieces and projections will align in the landscape, with letters composed of a matrix of bright discs and scribble forms displayed on a monumental scale.
