David Osbaldeston's A Note about Imprecision is a humorous and thought-provoking work that is a summation of Osbaldeston’s ongoing quest to debunk the language of science and certainty.  His signature cut and paste technique and wry sense of humour creates a work that is visually rich and brain teasingly cryptic.
