'The Bathymetric Atlas of the English Lake District' is a hand-made book measuring 120 x 120 cm, depicting the hidden contours of the principal lakes in the English Lake District at their various altitudes at a scale of 1:41250. Each lake appears and disapears gradually as the pages, matching the altitude, are turned.
“When you get your ordnance survey map you find contour after contour detailing the forms of the mountains but you find nothing detailling the depth of the lakes”.
Conceived and devised by Christian Barnes and commissioned by Locus+.
