Primitive hunters read the landscape primarily for survival but also for meaning. The need hasn't lessened although the relationship of the modern hunter to the data landscape has become highly abstracted. My girlfriend's interest in astrology, and reading about subjects such as Ley lines and evolution, prompted this collaged landscape of cut up images and scrambled DNA like lettering that promises to yield meaning yet never quite delivers.
