Studio > Monarchical Index

Monarchical Index is a multimedia study of basic simulation. Employing various strategies ranging from physical synthesis to optical representation to reflection, the work catalogs a number of methodologies used to signify a given subject - in this case, organisms belonging to the Plantae Kingdom. Furthermore, this sculptural work highlights the limits of these strategies as a vehicle for simulation by drawing attention to the separation between the symbols they produce and the incredibly complex systems they reference.
