SYMBIOTIC GRAPHICS

Germination of tropical vegetable species on digital photography. Variable measures

The work consists in the creation of a symbiotic system between art and nature, using photography as a way to process and as illustrative support (in its first stage) that is to say, the canvas containing a temporary and referential fragment (the portrait), intervened with germination of tropical vegetable species, which leads to modification and transformation of the work in the very process, where a new habitat begins to arise.

The roots create a drawing of capricious and organic lines covering the initial portrait; these work as activator and metaphoric element of the vital cycles (life/death) and the symbolism of the entrenchment of a territory far away from its nature, in this case photography.
