Slow and Steady

Slow and Steady Charles Darwin I finished these at the beginning of December but it wasn't until today that I had the time to scan them. If you want to know about the inspiration for the project, you can check out the original post I made back in October about the lack of rivalry between Charles Darwin and Alfred Russel Wallace, two men who, independently of one another, developed theories of natural selection to explain the diversity of species.

This print is supposed to be hung as a sort of educational installation on the importance of diligence in scientific research. For an additional level of education it will appear alongside eleven other preliminary prints, each a step along the path leading to the final image. In this way, the printmaking process is revealed to the viewer. If you want to see what those prints look like in extreme detail, you could check out the Slow and Steady set on Flickr.
