The Reclamation is an art series exploring the decomposition of human bodies and the nutrient cycle. Each piece represents a phase of decomposition, from death to dust, and ways nature reclaims our bodies to foster life.
For most, this topic is unsettling and uncomfortable. I use science to shed light on the importance and complexity of decomposition, and a creative lens to help beautify the subject and engage viewers who might otherwise look away.
By highlighting how life is facilitated by death, I’m hoping we can learn that what we see as an end is actually teeming with potential.
