Small Goals drawings on minerals (left to right):
1) Leached from Wall-Rock Silicates (Oxidization), 2017
Possible Archean algae and Runic writing -- colored pencil on thermo-sensitive polystyrene, vanadinite -- formed when lead-bearing deposits oxidize.
2) Vegetative Art, 2017
850 million year old Filamentous Cyanobacteria, and Early Cambrian calcareous algae -- graphite and colo- red pencil on thermo-sensitive polystyrene (yogurt container), iron-rich stone -- found in the Sierra Nevada mountains.
3) Time Management, 2017
300 million year old (Carboniferous) forest -- graphite on thermo-sensitive polystyrene (yogurt container) on rhyolite with garnet -- formed at high temperature and pressure.
4) Layers, 2017
Graphite on thermo-sensitive polystyrene (yogurt container), petrified wood.
6) Her Ancient and Enduring Energies Rising, 2017
300 million year old fern pinnule -- graphite on thermo-sensitive polystyrene (yogurt container) and smart chip, chrysocolla -- formed in the oxidation zones of copper ore bodies.
7) Mineral Thought, 2017
Graphite on thermo-sensitive polystyrene (yogurt container), magic sculp, lapis lazuli, tufa -- formed when springs at the bottom of lakes discharged calcium that combined with carbonate and dissolved in water.
Light data wavering
And radiating out from the void
Soaking into algae
Lapping at the shore
And up onto dry land
Plant data dripping off
Seeping into the banded iron formations of ancient rocks
An amalgamated data mixture creating their oxide color
Leaching out crystals and forever altering the appearance of Terran / Earth Awaiting mammalian life
