Comparative Morphologies

Comparative Morphologies by artist Stephanie Syjuco, she writes –

What looks like vintage natural history studies turns out to be, on closer inspection, images of computer and technological cords and peripherals, each slightly manipulated to take on organic characteristics–a fused or sprouting growth from a stem, a viral infection, or a radial symmetry.

I used a digital camera to photograph the computer cords and peripherals that surrounded my home workstation, and then transferred them to the computer where i digitally altered and added to the original images. Arranged suggestively on an image of a vintage print (the original botanical images on it having been erased), the techie beginnings become transformed into the final archival-quality iris prints.
