The Ribbon Collection

As a hopeless collector of worthless things this work attempts to organise and catagorise items that I have accumulated.


It is inspired by Werner’s Nomenclature of Colours; used by Charles Darwin on the Voyage of the Beagle to describe, calibrate and compare the colour of new-found species with that of recognised birds, plants and animals.


Matching the objects to the Pantone cards became like the act of painting; mixing colour before light changes.
