Artwork description:

Leaf 2 examines how natural forms adapt to modern industrial landscapes through a process called Industrial Melanism.

This process refers to the evolution of dark body colours in animal species that live in habitats blackened by industrial pollution. The phenomenon has been documented in numerous species that hide from predators by blending in with their backgrounds. Peppered moths provide one example, and my Leaves another.
