Transplant - Uninvited Collaborations with Nature, Nina KatchadourianCibachrome, 8 x 10 inches, 1998
In my father’s study in our summer cottage in the Finnish  archipelago a certain kind of insect called a Jewelwing always dies in  droves over the winter. I find many of their delicate green corpses on  the windowsill at the start of each summer. Several of these wings were  used to repair a plant whose leaves were the same shape as the insect  wings.
