From the Rabbit Hole: The Plan (as of day 15 of residency)

Written by Pam Posey on September 27th, 2016

In my previous post I tried to show how I was getting a bit lost in research. I left the lab Saturday frustrated but determined to find my way back to a workable place.

Then-

Sunday I had dinner with friends and their 11 year old daughter, R. I was talking about my ICI project and said I was afraid I was falling down a rabbit hole. R sat up straight and confidently informed me that I was too big to fit in a rabbit hole, which is only about (now she used her hands) this size.

Today, as I walked into the lab, I looked up to the ceiling at the only source of natural light

and thought-

is that the opening and am I truly in the rabbit hole? Or, is everything inverted and the rabbit hole is actually the window? …..

But ultimately R was right. I can’t fit down (or up) the rabbit hole.

So, I decided to simply state my intentions for this Monkey Head project.

I begin at the source, the 3 stone Study Objects:

and work backwards to the book, which will be an Atlas

and I come up with this –

TO LAY BARE THE COMPLICATIONS OF RE-SEARCH AND RE-PRESENTATION BY CREATING AN ATLAS THAT DEPICTS THREE STUDY OBJECTS

which sounds like a plan.
