Beginning in 2017, an expanding memorial wall installation of Ghost Plants. Each piece connected to the memorial is on white paper with layers of carbon and is 15"x11.5" (HxL).

Researching and working with the material of carbon and time to explore the connection between plants and human relationships, Our Ancient Remains is inspired by my plant fossil hunting excursions in Cincinnati, Ohio. The region in and surrounding Cincinnati has specific geographical locations that have allowed for large amounts of plant and animal fossil deposits to be pushed up to the surface. Most of the ancient plants that I collected are over 450 million years old or older.
