Finding the Right Moment

I was reading a book on the history of batteries in which the author used the terms “evolution” and “adaptation” purposefully to relate the development of battery technology to biological change. Simultaneously, an enormous proportion of the current “good news” on climate change is about battery advances. The works in this series are inspired by the little ecosystems depicted in battery diagrams. I am deconstructing, blending, and reconfiguring the them, imagining new relationships and entities and thinking about our own interconnectedness.
