“This is part of a series in which I re-caption archived forestry diagrams, re-inserting lyric, allegorical or philosophical thought about the forest. It concerns managerial attitudes towards forestry, often from old Forestry Commission figures (these skeletal graphic codes of place, designed to be instructive) - but tests these visual modes of knowledge by bringing in unreconciled literary voices. This piece of work is responding to contemporary arguments about the visual modelling of the forest and how to quantify its social and cultural data.” -- Amy Cutler
