Vermilion Remains is a project that uses scientific and cultural archives from the mid-century to document the disappearing biodiversity and fishing camp culture of La Cholla, a headland in Mexico along the Sea of Cortez. The installation consists of thirty paintings of varying size and dimensions, fifteen glass and steel vitrines that display objects of the same era mined from an old dumping site on the headland, and an oversized spool of letterpress take-away cards that record fish specimens, fishing shacks and historical anecdotes.
