The aquatic sediments

It's been some months working on this show, early on we were pleased to come across the work of Randolf Kirkpatrick and his book the nummulosphere which the title of the show comes from. One of the interesting things about Randolf was his unswerving monomania in regard of his obsession with the unlikely theory he held regarding the Origen of the earths crust. This image depicts this cyclopean  obsession. I'm hoping to complete a booklet to go with the show which features some of these drawings and other writings around pseudo science, water, ontological origins and that sort of thing..
