A Bivariate Map

A Bivariate Map made visual connections between selected passages in Darwin’s On the Origin of Species with the Old Testament of the King James Bible.  A Bible concordance was used to locate each word in the selected phrases and these words were highlighted with white gesso circles and joined with free-drawn pencil lines. A table of contents listing the words indicated the location of each word within the grid. Additional words not in usage in the King James version of the Old Testament were added into the spaces in the margins, highlighted, and included in the contents.
