Anatomy 01

"Although nature commences with reason and ends in experience it is necessary for us to do the opposite, that is to commence with experience and from this to proceed to investigate the reason."  Leonardo da Vinci

I started out by exploring questions of  representation (imagination) and observation. I made some first drafts to facilitate my arts-based studies.
