This sculpture was part of a group exhibition titled "Bartram's Boxes Remix". The focus of the exhibit was the life and work of John Bartram, considered North America's first botanist.

In and Down and Up and Out is a map of the movement of information that John and his son William collected as they traveled up and down the east coast of the United States. Their information was then sent to London where it was published, sent out into the world, and funding was then returned to the Bartram's so they could continue their research. This is not a map of the geography, rather a visual experience of the feeling of that information traveling around the world.
