Isolating a single specimen of the wheat plant, Meta-Evolution is a meditation on the notion of transformation embodied in nature. Human beings live in an ever-evolving symbiotic relationship with the plants that sustain us; human reliance on wheat ensures the ongoing existence of both. Meta-Evolution uses the aesthetics and philosophies of systems biology to explore a mystical approach to the balances of nature, contemplating technology’s potential as an intermediary in a harmonious relationship between human beings and the natural world.

Developed with the assistance of systems biologist Dr. Peter Schaap and Niels Zondervan of Wageningen University.

Metaevolution, 2014, Mixed Media, 140 x 45 x 45 cm.
