The Galapagos Islands, one of the world’s hot spots of evolution; where the idea itself first evolved, took meaning and changed our view of the world. The pattern, texture and lines that make up the iguana’s skin, mirror the complexity of evolution, reflecting the diversity of life born out of the immense timescale where claw becomes hand, scale or skin.
