Sampler Series draws from observation, experimentation and preservation through diaristic practice. This panel was drawn from an old photograph I made on New Year's Day 2021. My brother and I wove backpacked into tall and glaucus filiform stalks, while heavy black cicadas with red eyes hugged hardier stems. On the edge of the industrial precinct, I met the fortuitous work of abandonment, asemic glyphs shaped from wire left to darken and rust in the gritty dirt. The glyphs reflected artificial fabrication, language and the shifting gaze of meaning, but they also echoed the cicada chorus - the mysterious manifestation of irregular populational cycles - gripping the reaches of cool plantlife till the end of February and the meteorological summer.
