compost poems

compost poems

I’m currently working on a series of compost poems and artworks, using observation and interaction with three compost systems.

I’m exploring compost as composition, as death (decay) and as life (methane) (which are also life (decay) and death (methane) respectively).

I’m composting my old notebooks, news headlines, bodily traces (hair) and various wastes. I’m learning about the various populations that make up your average compost system. I’m attempting to represent digestion, decay and composition both procedurally and formally.

I’m also using composting as spell, blessing, and divination.
