This artwork was started early in the pandemic
when the imagining of a catastrophic future made
the uselessness of art seem a freeing thing.
Just making was its own reward.
Underlying this was the idea that we humans are a
conglomerate mutation built by the successive
intrusions of various viruses, prehistoric apes,
infectious ideas, modernity and orchestrated
behavioural changes.
