The history of Imperialism rests upon man's desire to have dominion over Nature and his fellow species.  This occurs through the ownnership and manipulation of the land, natural resources and all the living organisms.  These series of images explore the manipulation of natures parts. They all begin with photographs of plants, animals and natural phenomena.  They are then layered with microdrawings. This visual integration symbolizes the unconscious life of the new  creations. The images are fractioned and multiplied using symmetry to illustrate their reproductive changes and thier capacity to multiply. Their power is in their reproduction, in the assertion of their pattern, like new paradigms.  Their potential like in all new discoveries or artificail elements rests solely on the perception and experiience of the viewer.
