"Place/Trace," 2014, from the portfolio "Drawn from the McClung Museum," archival inkjet print by Deborah Cornell. Edition: 1/30
Designed in response to McClung Museum objects: (unnumbered) scanning electron microscope image of giant river cane (Arundinaria gigantea), Woodland period, ca. 200 BC, and 1952.3.81, Aboriginal bark painting, early to mid-20th century by Sam Yilgari.
Artist statement: I considered two objects from different times and locations, each an evocation of natural pattern. One was an artifact of daily existence-a scanning electron microscope image of a burned fragment of giant river cane, c. 200 BC-probably used as a torch. The other was an Aboriginal bark painting
