Pando (2016) 22×53″, pencil, pen & ink, letterpress on torn paper collage


Pando, which is Latin for “I spread,”  is the name of an aspen grove in Utah that contains approximately 47,000 tree trunks from a single root system. It’s considered by scientists to be the largest single living organism. How would we change our formal justice system if we looked at ourselves as similarly, intrinsically bound together?
