00 Scale : 28 cms : Chlorophyll 3188.

Acrylic, Bachman fixtures, graphics, brass ladder and walkway 28 x 12 x 6 cms in museum case. 2020

This is a 28 cms stand alone wagon and is developed around the idea of the chemistry of the vegetative world.

This artwork is based around the theme of the chemistry of plant life. The wagon has chlorophyllic imagery along with a display of the molecular composition of one of the chemical varieties of chlorophyll; from which the plant derives its substance. The whole expresses the mechanical complexity and geometrical structures that underlying biological systems in the plant world. The mass of plants is presented as an ill fitting jigsaw of genetic possibilities - ready to be re-assembled to respond to its environment.

This series of artworks function as a commentary on the methodology of contemporary scientific model-making. In that instance we have seen the inadequacies of the process multiplied by the use of supercomputers. In these works, that potential for error is overcome by the use of the phenomenology of the model railway environment and associated mechanics.
