Simon Read at the Royal Academy of Art Summer Show 2016

Simon Read is included at Royal Academy of Art Summer Show 2016 with a large map work titled “This much I know, the rest I will guess.”

Simon commented on the work:

In 2010, the Environment Agency published a Shoreline Management Plan for the Suffolk Coast as policy guidance over the next five years. Since it is a challenge for those who live in a location to imagine the changes that may happen through the lens of statistical information, my response was to appeal to the imagination by taking the area covered by the management plan adding topography, bathymetry and tidal flow, conjuring a northeasterly storm on a rising tide to speculate upon what might happen.
