The elements of this work carry much symbolic significance. Triangles, which include a circle within, or, are divided by a line, are ancient forms representing Earth, Air, and Water. The text is an element through which I explore aesthetics such as pattern, transition, and colour contrast. It also signifies communication, or perhaps, the lack thereof, between people and Nature. The text, which is written in Old English Gothic, alludes to illuminated manuscripts which were once created to both preserve and share knowledge. In this work, it lists the names of endangered creatures.
