The artist is William Cobbing.The stage procee of organism has revealed that the same structures have adapted for different aim in different animals: a bat's wing evolved fromits ancestor's fingers and human ear bones evolved from the same structure as reptile jaws. The artist explores the human pelvis and skull may also have the same stage process. "Palindrome" was inspired by a section in J G Ballard's The Atrocity Exhibition, in witch a character imagines that "the bones of the pelvis may constitute the remains of a lost sacral skull".
