About this exposition

what does composting as an art form look like? how can the process of decomposition be considered in an aesthetic form? can formal concerns be applied to organic processes? These are just a couple of questions to start out with. For the last 10 years plant material of various types have been brought together by me, to rot and change form. Branches, tea-bags, dead plant material, bacteria, fungi and the like come together to make compost. The process from death and uselessness to nourishment and potential of organic matter is the object of study.
