This exhibition examines the temporality and slow growth of organisms that we often pass by in our daily life. The sculptures analyze gradual changes and are intended to evoke an awareness of cyclical time. Inviting the viewer to touch these works made from moss serves as a reminder of slow growth patterns and resilience. Through this tactile component, the viewer enters a cyclical microcosm of desiccation and rehydration full of minute and unobservable changes. The installation provides a space for this temporality to coalesce with our own, creating an experience apart from linear conceptions of time.
