This work is one of a group of document-like drawings from the ongoing body of work "Field Notes". At first distant and mechanical, the works reference scientific imaging and printed ephemera. However, the works' meticulous hand-drawn surfaces also gesture at a very human meditation on the natural world, and our desire to capture and dote over its specimens.
