Amazonian Firepit

2022 Print

The Phaistos Project is an online publication seeking research driven observation–political, economic, ecological, and cultural–be translated into a collection of forty-five unique symbols. The research process utilized digital databases and analog experimentation to generate concepts.


Amazonian Firepit focuses on the crisis of the Amazon Rainforest being ‘slashed and burned’. Each symbol symbolizes the leaf ridges of plant species found in the rainforest. The ridges were printed and burned to create contrast of the harsh flame and the rainforest’s fragility.
