You Get a Lot of Magnets (Newt)
This work concerns growth, development and empowerment (both from a literal and metaphoric point of view). “You Get a Lot of Magnets” are illustrations of replication, growth, and regeneration found in materials, animals and plants. The triptych, and its three elements: a magnet, a willow tree and a newt, exemplifies growth understood through the lenses of the biology “field phenomena.”
A field is defined as an area with a boundary and/or a region of activity. Fields are fundamental to nature, invisible structures in space that exist outside the boundaries of the material objects. In the case of the magnetic field, the field is not just within the magnet, it is all around it.
If a magnet is cut, the result is not an isolated north pole, but two magnets each with a complete magnetic field (positive + negative). Living organisms are much more like the field phenomena than like machines. You can make thousands of trees from the same willow tree.
