A4 Collage in green paper.
This trilobite was found in the Burgess Shale and illustrated and detailed in Stephen Jay Gould's 'It's a Wonderful Life'
I've also used text from Stephen Jay Gould's book in this work. I enjoyed the construction of this piece and wanted to make a big deal of the intricacies of the creature. I found that cutting and sticking tiny bits of paper did this well. The tentacles are a photocopied tin can.
A collage homage to trilobites.
Spent the rest of the day with bits of green trilobite stuck to my fingers. Not the look of chic sophistication women crave.
