Andrea Martin combines her science and art backgrounds to create designs that tell a story, deliver an environmental message, or show an unusual point of view. Using observation and a scientist’s eye, write a detailed description of something in nature. Include patterns, interactions, and unusual elements you observe.
Now try to create a paper-cutting of your natural object. Remember Martin’s example of the leaf eaten by beetles. Think back to all the times you’ve cut out snowflakes and refine that technique. Can you reveal something unusual about nature?
