      Steve Rowell: Points Of Presence

      Steve Rowell's photographic project 'Points of Presence', presented for Groundwork in the Porthcurno Telegraph Museum, captures sites on either side of the North Atlantic where submarine telegraph and telephone cables emerge from the ocean floor. The first telegraph cables installed in the mid-19th century physically connected Land's End and Newfoundland - literally plugging the old world into the new. Lying alongside this web of dark (dead) cables is today's fibre-optic network. Terabits of data per second flow beneath the oceans of the world in millions of miles of cables: hidden by the waves, buried beneath beaches, and protected inside nondescript coastal station houses on every continent. Clues to these sites can be found by the curious. With a focus on place and an emphasis on moving image, sound and performance, Groundwork is a season of new commissions and sited work by internationally acclaimed artists in Cornwall. A changing programme of exhibitions and events unfolds from 5 May to 30 September.

      Cost: 5.50 to 9.50
