Pages from the 'homage to the seed' journal -
above: I have been researching fruits indigenous to Qld and this region - looking closely at the cross-section structures of the capsules and pods over this past month in the studio - all of which has found its way into work for an up coming show.
below: Under the microscope in the Seed Lab. Over the past 2 weeks, under instruction from Jason Halford who runs this lab that is part of the Millennium Seed bank Project, I have been taking notes, getting quick sketches and photographed images of the collected seeds in the process of being cleaned, sorted, counted, weighed, documented and packaged to send to Kew Gardens. Drawing whilst looking through the microscope and keeping my specs on has been tricky but a fascinating exercise. I even had a go at taking photographs of what could be seen through the microscope... See more of recent work at the studio archives blog and I will be posting on the work of the Seed lab and Jason Halford's involvement in this very soon on the residency blog.
