Stations of Aural Phylogeny
These sculptural aperati are components of an ongoing project through which I have been constructing a fictive museum of useless technology. The STATIONS focus upon a central image of a childs ear. These silver bromide images are integrated into a compound structure of glass lenses which house, as well, fragments of morphological texts, backlit by a single refridgerator bulb. Taking original phylogenetic charts developed in the nineteenth century by the natural philosopher E. Haeckel, I have redrawn my own maps of genetic lineage and history and incorporated them into these viewing devices. Scattered randomly around the site of exhibition, the following text accompanies the work.
