Batches of peels and skins were photographed at the moment of being added to a decomposition chamber: Vegetable matter which has begun to rot in a small container (indoors) is added to the main container (outdoors), the juices flow. The bright colours disappear during the decay and reappear later in the fruit that grows from the enriched soil. The matter is not waste but is new food.
The silky garments are worn in relaxed contexts in order to think about the slow process of change + growth. Fresh energy occurs through breaking down, nutrients replaced. The soft sensation will aid sleep and images of the un-wasted beautiful plant matter laying on the skin may encourage comforting thoughts of growing and cycles.
The images were taken over a 6 month period of watching rot; photographing (what will be) compost.
