a drawing that became a poster

I found this strange object on a beach on the Hudson river near Newburgh. there were hundreds of them washed ashore. I learned that they were water chestnuts seedpods. I had already been collecting seed pods and added this to the collection. the seed pod is a fascinating object, combining the will of the plant to survive with the temporality of a shell that is meant to be discarded.
