Evolutionary Tree

Evolutionary Tree

Piece description from the artist

Pen and ink on acid -free drawing paper. Micron 0005 tip pigment ink felt tip pen. The double helical DNA motif is fused with an abstracted tree. The DNA motif moves upward from the trunk and forms the branches, alluding to the biochemical commonality in our family tree. The tree motif is a powerful way to represent biochemical connectivity. The tree form with branches and sub branches and twigs has the same pattern as many types of branching processes and data. At the same time, living trees themselves play a crucial role in preserving the ecosystem and keeping the planet habitable.
