Reconnecting with nature, on a hike near Raglan, I collected ponga stalk, seabird feathers, and ferns. I laid out these large pieces of paper, and went off, playing with the elasticity and nature of these evolutionarily engineered forms, in what I would consider the most spiritually exhausting piece I've done recently.
I'm so proud of this piece as it marks a relenting to the the organised chaos of biological forms besides me, as we always have as humans, though in this moment we are quite separate - culturally and in actuality.
These prints are smaller than the actual piece - I will get around to taking a good quality picture soon!
