Chasing Linnaeus' Profile
Chasing Linnaeus is an exploration of the wonder and romance of the age of Victorian explorers and naturalists, and a translation of that essence into a 21st-century aesthetic. If one of those old Victorian explorers were alive today -- with their iPhone and camera and backpack and plant press, exploring far-flung lands and meeting remote tribes of people -- what might that aesthetic look like? How would they dress? What artifacts would adorn their living space? What stories would they tell?
Chasing Linnaeus is an attempt to answer that question in a very tangible way, and my Etsy shop exists as a sort of virtual outpost for those collected pieces so that others may also participate in "the chase."
