Treating the translation of natural processes as a way to capture subjects transitioning between forms, I aim to reveal the visual similarities achieved by methods of viewing different perspectives, such as from below or from above. The trace left by these translations can be accidental or unplanned - a drop of paint, a collision of two planes. Multiple layers of information fused together, providing a new perspective or obstructing a former one. By using glass as a surface, I reference microscope slides. By forging figures that become landscapes seen from above, I direct the gaze of the viewer as if it was a mechanism of surveillance. Essentially revealing the polymorphous state of our own realities, and asking, in the digital age, how do analog creatures coexist and evolve their deep rooted traditions and habits?
