Scientific investigations often require repetitious methods. To carry out these methods the scientist’s body is often tracing the same physical movement with each experiment. Kerrilyn kindly allowed me to document her filtering soil samples in preparation for carbon analysis. This work explores the relationship between what Kerrilyn is doing and how she is physically moving in time in order to perform this task. It allows us to see how even repetitive actions create both clarity and knowledge.
