The Research Vessel

Robert Sparrow Jones's avatar Robert Sparrow Jones

The Research Vessel is a fable about our fragile environment. Though the image, stylistically, may appear nostalgic, the scene is set in the future. A younger generation tries to rebuild what it has lost. A treehouse is a childhood place of safety, perspective, and yet remains precarious while it gently sways in the boughs of the trees.
