Johann Friederich Wilhelm Herbst (1743-1807), a German churchman, naturalist, and superb artist, drew this illustration of the crab Cancer reticulatus for his book series Versuch einer Naturgeschichte der Krabben und Krebse… (Attempt at a natural history of crabs and crayfish…). In this three-volume work, Herbst illustrated and described crabs and crayfish. Thanks to their meticulous detail and coloring, the beautiful images endure as a useful scientific resource.

Mind Map Filtered
This project began as artwork for a comix art show curated by Esther Pearl Watson at Webb Gallery in Waxahachie, TX the summer of 2011.
As a society we are forced to concentrate on many things simultaneously, on the computer, at work, the street sounds or sounds inside, machine noise, people noise, overheard conversations, comments, advertising, news, television, friends, strangers, emails, spam. Bombarded. My mind is rarely at rest. Everything is presented equally. The brain has to filter and sort and choose. Mine works differently than it did before. Maybe it has evolved.
These images are a representation of filtered choices, past and present and future. store
