Day #9 of Monkey Head residency

Updated: Dec 21, 2018

I have been spending my time:


Thinking about Atlases/ Thinking about how they convey knowledge




I’m having a conversation with this book, among others. Also talking to LP.


Specifically, I’m reading about the history of the scientific Atlas. The book breaks it up into 3 sections:


Truth-to-Nature


Mechanical Objectivity


Trained Judgement


Working in my Lab Book





I decided if it’s not worth looking at, it’s not worth reading. Here I am experimenting with different ways to re-present an image.


Making my Daily Drawings


For the past 10 years I have been making a daily drawing. Here are the ones I made on days I was at the lab. They tend to be about the topic of my research, which is, roughly, what would an atlas of stones look like if it included the aberrant instead of the essential? How could that reflect theories of science and, by extension, art/culture theories like “Speculative Realism”, “Thing Theory” and “Object-Oriented Ontology”?
