The Meaning of (Still) Life: An Unnatural History

A sub-set of the Meaning of (Still) Life works, 'An Unnatural History' focuses upon current environmental issues, using a multi-style format. Specific narratives around Australian endangered species present detailed information about habitats, threats and possible remediations to the problems. These ideas are presented in multi-panelled works featuring clip art and other illustrations, appropriated from Google image searches. Many works in this series also feature text panels to further elaborate upon the content.
