In The Forest and Human Behavior two large screenprints are conceived by the artist as a pair meant to immerse the viewer in the contrast between wilderness and civilization. In Human Behavior, the books’ spines create a dense barrier, while The Forest seems enterable, like a door or window into the natural world. Thomson’s fascination with Time-Life® books, which he regards as a type of proto-internet (a readily available source of a great deal of information) has inspired much of his recent work in other media.
