................. Extinct | Extant is the first of a series of sculptural pieces titled Game Theory. Each work in the series appears to be a childhood game but addresses larger questions about our behavior and attitudes. Obsolete and residual technology is an important element in the work and residual print technologies were utilized in the fabrication, including thermal screen printing, ditto-masters and letterpress type.

A while ago I was given a large two-volume dictionary from 1930 that belonged to my grandparents. Leafing through it, I found many diagrams of machines and technologies that are now obsolete. It made me wonder if the animals depicted were also endangered or extinct. Many were. This gift was the catalyst for the ongoing series.
