This is a 3 wagon triptych and is developed around the idea of the chemistry of vegetative world.

This artwork is based around the theme of the chemistry of plant life. The 2 outer wagons have chlorophyllic imagery along with the 2 forms of Chlorophyll - alpha and beta. The inner wagon displays the equation of chemical transformation between sunlight and chlorophyll to make carbohydrates 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.
