See explant tissues bred in a sterile gelified medium, the vital material onto which she sprinkles her endocrinological essence. They are monsters in becoming. Sex hormones, isolated from her urine, assist the process of somatic embryogenesis; the making of a seedless vegetable fetus, the tainted conception of the Other, which might or might not be found amongst the bestiary of evolution. The sinless phytoteratology lends a plantlet shaped by the infonutritive capacity of the human body, a hybrid of the post-genetic era; because there is no cut between animal and plant, just a parting and points at which we meet, molecules which wander our communal semiosphere, searching for new meaning.

The series “Phytoteratology” has received the White Aphroid Award 2016 (Si).
