arvensis (of the field)
Being inside form is effortless.”
Eduardo Kohn, How Forests Think
How to trouble the effortless being-inside? Working texts and images into and against one another, making objects to find what is impossible in thought, inking paper to trouble what comes too easily to mind. Proceeding by analogy, a laddering of relation, a studied cultivation of difference. Tending to all that lives by the logic of turning, stubbornly insisting on representing the hand that grounds the turning. Seeds and seating, cutting open, bringing home.
