MASS- bloom explorations
In a transparent dome of plastic, the human Hilde I. Sandvold and thousands of mealworms live side by side
Apart from being a huge part of our human throw-away mentality, this kind of plastic also happens to be a source of nourishment that pleases the ever-hungry mealworms. The potential is born for a new form of symbiosis between species. An organism capable of living from plastic could be the beginning of a new blooming of species one earth.
Together, the mealworms and Hilde co-create a new space. They conduct a durational choreography – an installation in which the space is slowly but visibly being altered by the worms’ digestion and the human body in motion. The crackling sound of the eating worms blend with the voice of the author Ida Marie Hede, as she reads aloud from her text on the peculiarities of life in the plastic habitat.
