The ways in which humans attempt to quantify, or impose structure or a framework to that which is inherently elusive, limitless and abstract.

Maps of the land and ocean have clear practical applications, but the data these provide do not offer a true sense of the thing. The measurements of a mountain can tell you its scale, but a void of information exists between this and what we experience when standing at its summit.

‘energy is neither created, nor is it destroyed’
‘the elements suffer continual rearrangement’

Weather is the state of the atmosphere at a particular time. It is an atmospheric process that is in constant flux and without resolution, each aspect connected and not distinct from the others.

In recent work pen and pencil drawings take the place of a photographic negative and are printed using the cyanotype photographic printing process.
