A Taxonomy of Sorts
9 x 12 x 9
Eroded clay shard stones and some hand made spirals included in these installation pieces..Look closely to see the record numbers and lines on the Fisher Scientific boxes through the translucent vellum photograph inside the lids.
I tumble shards of broken pieces in sand and water to echo the erosive processes of ocean waves and river currents. I found myself impulsively sorting these pieces for storage in the studio, until the sorting became the work. The boxes and images, referencing a scientific methods of categorizing, became the perfect vehicle for my own quasi logic.
