The Pellitory Study 2013-18 is a body of research into the common plant pellitory-of-the-wall/perdikaki. The paper based study maps the growth of the common but overlooked weed in the urban environment through botanical processes, observational field work and historical research. The archive of 150+ drawings, diagrams, texts, pressed specimens and tools were produced under the moniker of The Collector and exhibited in 2016. The products of the study are depicted in the film Perdikaki (2019) and were included in an anthology alongside stills and text from the film as limited edition Pellitory of the Wall (2018),  with each edition containing a unique pressed specimen in the central spread.
