Measuring eggs

Measuring eggs

Plaster print inspired by images in old pigeon books at Yorkshire Museum of Farming for York Printmakers residency there.
My research in the library got me thinking about the ways people try to manage nature, particularly observing and classifying things in an attempt to bring order to the natural world.
I am interested in the tension between natural evolution and our selective breeding of plants and animals as we attempt to achieve predictability and control.
