Origin010 utilises drawing, painting, text and animation to explore our complex relationship with nature. Having evolved from its on-line 'alter-ego' www.origin09.org, Origin010 might be viewed as an ephemeral, physical manifestation of what was first created in cyberspace. By juxtaposing and connecting a variety of styles and creative strategies within and across the gallery, our aim is to present a plexus or complex network of relationships that references our perceived 'organisation' of the biological world.

Though essentially celebratory in its intention, we hope that Origin010 will still propose a number of serious questions regarding the validity of the anthropocentric world view and, quite simply, about what it means to be alive.
