Monet did more than 30 paintings of the Rouen Cathedral. Art Historians frame this as him exploring the light. He explored other things as well: color, brush stroke, speed of painting, training and retraining his eye for the subject and more. Fixing one or several variables allows for and requires that other variables fluctuate. This method of isolating variables, it's what scientists stole from artists and then claimed as their own. Sandra Haynes discusses the process she uses to isolate variables and work in series using examples from three of her series projects, The State of Mind drawings, the Modernism's Dirty Laundry mixed media collages, and The Discarded Tarot, a series of 78 symbolic collages.
