The exhibition includes images of healing, edible plants and tea trees used as an insect repellent and antiseptic for treating various health conditions. These images were developed by a fusion of organic and photographic materials in the process of natural decomposition, revealing what is usually invisible to the eye; the biological chemical progression of decay and degeneration. It reveals beauty in decomposition and raises notions of transformative cycles.
