Schedule of visual contemplations

Kopleman lived for several weeks in the field station where I also live here in Gamboa – building 183. Each morning she would go out and collect the leaf and seed debris in her leaf traps close by. She had a makeshift drawing set-up and spent up to 6 hours a day drawing the day’s find. She would draw (record) the totality of what was collected each day. The drawings were lyrical and soft, but…taken as a whole, were a powerful presence.
