These images arise in dialogue with other organisms - I provide templates and look at how plants and insects respond using their own language.  The photographs document the overlap between our different forms of communication.  The marks of our collaboration are simultaneously abstract and perfectly material.  The constraints I impose on these small systems reflect the ways that humans live in the world - laying grids, mapping the unknown, simplifying complexity.  But in these images I am also trying to reach for what lies beyond the desire to know and the capacity to control - a world not yet fully grasped, intuited by everything that goes unseen.
