Future Farming continues my investigations into the patterns and codes used to represent and ?map? the natural world. It also draws on an interest in the relationship between prints - both traditional and digital - and scientific thought.
The works reference the historical role prints have held in circulating and controlling information about the natural world. The works also refer to contemporary projects in mapping nature such as genetic profiling and Dolly the sheep.
By using techniques such as conventional collage, I draw attention to nature as a construct that is open to change, manipulation or reinterpretation.
