boundaries of decay

boundaries of decay

In this paper work I searched for the traces of decay in manmade as well as in natural formations. Through structures and forms, connections between those worlds are visualised. The cycle of genesis and decline, that roots through all areas in life is perceptible. The Process of decay und decomposition can also bring the roots and the base nature of things to light. A leaf crumbles apart until only it‘s bare skeleton is left. The veins, that kept the organic structure alive, reveal the parallels between the city life with it‘s buildings, paths and roads, which are the materials that form our environment into a pulsating, living being. I formed a graphic installation with light and shadow, which transforms natural decay into the structures of a new, unkown city.
