Reclamation was a short stop motion film I made for Graduate Critique. I was exploring the possibility of organic matter evolving rapidly through the consumption of technology. This scene depicts mycelium (I used dripping wax) ingesting a computer chip. It’s physical properties change and it can now digest new forms of matter, in this case a plastic straw. What’s left in the wake of this new biological evolution is a hybrid flower, fed by the technologically enriched soil from the altered mycelium.
