Taxonomy of Three Living Objects, 2012

The three organisms represented in the mock Scientic Posters are the Mexican Jumping Bean, the Venus Fly Trap, and the Siamese Fighting Fish. The common element that units these organism is that they are commoditized and sold as novelties which diminishes there value as organisms. They are commonly mistreated, and, as a result, most scenarios end in the premature death of the plant or animal. By making these posters I hoped to highlight that they are living creatures and they deserve a greater degree of respect then a spot on a dime store shelf
