Vision

Curiosity Frequency was the first bottle of the project thrown, by my mother, on a boat captained by my father. I find it fitting that they were the first ones involved; reflecting in a nebulous way the origins of my being with the genesis of this project.

Text from the Wellcome collection regarding the Curiosity figure[s], "Plate engraving illustrating a personification of 'Curiousity'. This figure has an abundance of ears and frogs on her robe (both symbolising inquisitiveness, the latter by their goggle eyes), her hair stands in end, wings on her shoulders, her arms lifted up- these physical characteristics symbolise that she is trying to move in order to hear and see news."
