Making is always collaboration, being is always togetherness. Living in an

illusion of autonomy, we fail to perceive the non-human elements that support our existence. Material objects can be difficult to recognise, because

they are beyond our capacity for experiencing time and space. Observing and accepting the deep, elusive reality of objects allows us to rectify our

distorted view of the material world that underlies our everyday life.

Pigments settle on a surface following the properties of water by slowly drying. Darkness, forest, soil, rhizomes and signalling between plants all work

together, constantly combining with our growing knowledge of the significance of processes and mechanisms that are invisible to the human eye.
