This is the emblem for our Palimpsest project, inspired by the Maple leaf. Five separate leaves fused to become the Maple leaf we recognize.
The emblem goes back in time to the process by which five separate leaves fused into a single expression. It pushes the concept of palimpsest from noun to action – the process by which pieces and layers integrate into a complex system or organism.
I incorporated this emblem into Palimpsest project compositions. Visit the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts Flock House Project for descriptions and images of Inhabiting Flock House Omaha.
