The quote in its entirety is “from my rotting body flowers shall grow and I am in them, and that is eternity” - Edvard Munch. I made this piece for a number of reasons, and with a number of influences directing where I went with this work. The main reason I made this piece however was to remind people of their humaness - especially myself. What I mean by that, is I think it’s very easy in a world of literature, film, and technology, and with travel so easy, to separate ourselves from everyone else. We adapt that “other” mentality. It’s so far from the truth, so painfully far. You are are as removed from everyone else as a flower is removed from its fragrance. I tend to forget that I’m apart of a cycle, but with the conclusion of this drawing notebook, and with the first ever “series” illustration, that I am involved in a process - the process of creating and destroying - that has existed countless eons before I even thought to whisper the ideal.

“What does a museum look like behind the scenes? How are exhibits stored when they are not on display?
The focus of this study is not on the exhibition spaces of the museum, but on the space behind the scenes, particularly depots, cellars, and storage rooms assigned to individual departments which are generally not accessible to the public.
These spaces are used for the storage of countless exhibits belonging to various collections, sorted following a rigidly scientific classification system, but also taking into account the limited storage space available.”
