Relics of Nature
This is an on-going series that combines the history of science and archiving with artistic practices. Here, I am interested in creating my own archival collection of specimens. Instead of preserving the physical object, I am photographing the deseased, still allowing the viewer to ponder our delicate existence.
The work is comprised of original photographs, hand-set lead type on a vandercook letterpress machine and hand-made clamshell portfolio boxes.
