Assimilation

2017-2019

, “Assimilation”, deals with the integration of the human form into the nature through fungi, lichen, and moss. Fungi releases enzymes that breakdown the molecules of the living matter which they absorb. This decomposition and absorption process occurs on the organic material that they grow on. The Fungi is the liaison for the human to blend into the natural world. This series shows the beginning stages of that assimilation process.
