“Fossils have always interested me. They encapsulate a moment in time. The disregard for our natural surroundings by humanity will no doubt produce calamitous conditions for our environment. We are in the process of turning our planet into a man-made fossil. The title of my piece is a cautionary metaphor with fossilized spiders battling one another.”
