Plant matter: 'A play of forces'; after translating entropy.
This work explores ideas of excess and entropy, working with ikebana arrangements of plant matter at different stages of freshness and decay, partly in order to explore the related ideas of photosynthesis - essentially the ordering of disordered matter to make matter/things with light through the transformation of light energy to colour – entropy, and ‘excess’, in juxtapostion with Bataille.
