By mapping the cloned groups of anemones that flourish on coastal rocks, I'm hoping to visualize the separate groups that divide themselves with a stark line between non-familiar clones. The anemones split down the middle and become two organisms, and those two continue to split, etc... So, when a group of anemones is seen on a single rock, they are one clone group, keeping themselves separate from other groups.

By photographing all sides of these groups, I will flatten and map the Rorschach-like patterns that they form in order to give a better understanding of what this essentially singular (although made from many), looks like on its own - bringing together all the cloned organisms into one body or form, and compare the patterns of other groups- perhaps on cards to mimic the Rorschach forms I'm expecting they will result in.
