Text The project is inspired by nature’s ability to process and conquer even artificial materials and surfaces in order to sustain and enforce itself. Nature’s immense strength and power is accompanied by an aesthetic that indicates a peaceful progression of time. The emergence of moss, fungi and plants, as well as their disappearing, brings life into the inanimate materials and objects. The project explores how we can design materials that respond to nature and its resilience.
