"On an expedition the scientist collects incredible amounts of information and specimens, some
of which are looted from their places of origin. Back from the expedition, the collected material is
treated in an almost bureaucratic manner. It is examined, analyzed and categorized. The specimens
are cut into pieces which fit into the cultivated structure of contemporary science."
