iron plate oxidized with various rotting mushrooms.

about

leaving traces of their time in existence, mushrooms foraged from the local wild environment in different stages of decay, as well as waste from local organic mushroom farmers are mixed together with various acidic solutions to create their own exothermic ecoysystem that oxidize metal plates in stages. the mushrooms exist no more, but their mark, as a shadow in a transformative meeting between entities, creates an imagery that was facilitated by the human hand but created by natural processes and interactions. in decay, there is life.
