Alive-nesses: Proposal for Adaption, 2011
— Paint on storage containers —Alive-nesses : Proposal for Adaptation is informed by "dazzle" painting, an anti-range finding maritime camouflage technique used by the military between 1914 and 1945. The term "dazzle" was first used by A.H. Thayer in the book, Concealing Coloration in the Animal Kingdom (1909). There Thayer described natural systems on animal camouflage that break up the biomorphic body, by making it visually indistinguishable from its environment. He referred to these disruptive or high-difference patterns as "razzle dazzle."
