Intelligent Design, Internal Combustion



Under the working title Intelligent Design I explored a few ideas on the computer and in paint, inkjet and gold leaf etc. The themes not dissimilar to what I could be accused of having banged on about over the last godknowshowlong, ie War and Religion and the beliefs that this world (or the next) will be made a better place by acts of extreme brutality. Just one of many recent examples of this was the murder of Theo van Gogh in Amsterdam. Other subject matter addresses atrocities from the Iraq war and home-grown terrorism.

 

The death of Theo van Gogh



Some of these beliefs go hand in hand with a desire to refute the science of evolutionary biology, and the theories of Charles Darwin in particular. Using the inkblot (see what you are conditioned to see) Rorschach test on the

 

The Peppered Moth



The Peppered Moth is often cited as a visible demonstration of natural selection at work, and therefore as proof of Darwin's theories. The evidence suggested that during the grimiest period of the English industrial revolution the moths, which rest with their wings open on tree bark, adapted in wing colour to the prevailing background. This is a form of camouflage, because bird predators would be able to find the moths if they didn't match their background visually. When the trees are dark and sooty, the moths are better off being black; when the trees are soot-free or lichen-covered, they are better off pale and mottled. Dark forms of the British peppered moth (Biston betularia), as well as many other species of moth, became common in the middle of the 19th century near centres of industrial pollution. Soot coated the trunks and branches of trees, and killed lichens. In the example shown above, if you look closely you can see repeated an image on the body and wings of the moth that bears an uncanny resemblance to Charles Darwin himself. Make what you will of this... This work and more was shown at Flowers east in the spring of 2009  Can you see what it is yet...?
