These posters come from Crime Against Nature, which is both a book and a series of paintings. They combine images of the works with the text from the book to create punchy little memes that sum up the point of the project: that we don’t know as much about what is actually natural as we think we do!

“The issues at play here are hefty and potentially uncomfortable, but the book itself is light, playful, and pleasantly un-preachy.”
“The glimpses that Seemel has illustrated of the real wildness of the natural world are fascinating.”
“Seemel’s book covers it all and reminds us that if you’re inclined to look to nature for answers regarding what is ‘normal,’ ‘natural,’ or even ‘moral,’ it’s clear that nature passes no judgement.”
“It’s beautiful and weird and quirky and is guaranteed to spark conversation. ...When I got my print version of the book I also knew it belonged on the coffee table as much as in the classroom.”
