Most fungi rely on gravity and air currents during spore dispersal to spread their genetic material over a wide area. This act of microbiology is a perfect metaphor for seeds that are spread through actions and memories to perpetuate our cultural DNA. Our predecessors’ ideals decompose into a collective foundation for the next generation’s crop of concepts and technologies.

As we navigate an increasingly oversaturated culture, potentially meaningful experiences can get lost in the confusion. Beauty is often obscured within the ordinary. Discards, recycled artwork, text, and unconventional materials are used to create a lush diorama of mass-produced components. The work illustrates the delicate balance between construction and destruction – while opening a discussion of the world we intend to leave behind.
