As a photographer, the act of preservation, reverence, and documentation is my primary motivation. In bringing this approach to 3d modeling, the desire is to create idealized dreamscapes and pristine versions of the natural world to explore how we might preserve and restore what’s been lost. There is an inherent irony in using this technology to recreate the prehistoric, but I believe it is an irony that accentuates our connection, no matter how distant, to our moment of inception. These capsules serve as objects of veneration for the relics of our delicate ecosystem and the preservation of living specimens in the hopes of a second chance at life.
