First Carbon-Based Life

With these drawings, a visual enquiry into the possible origins of Carbon-based lifeforms on earth takes place.

Carbon is essential for all life on earth. Its ability to form four covenant bonds with other elements makes carbon essentially like a backbone for most organic molecules.

Within these drawings, questions and theories currently circulating within science are presented visually using materials rich in carbon. Echoing what may have happened billions of years ago when life first appeared on earth and what followed shortly after.
