Captain Komodo is a folding book of three prints, a meditation on gestures of male dominance that slide into territorialism, slavery, violence, and multi-national corporate land grabs, and reflects that gestures of dominance are primitive acts of survival. The prints, The Captain, The Captain's Boat and The Captain's Pearl Diver, are cut together with lines of the Malay Sufi folded tree bark manuscript, 'Poem of the Boat', comparing a mystical path to a boat voyage, with personal photographs and records, fish, surf, and mining maps, and Komodo dragon images, the giant local lizard with its own island.
