Seasons of FeedingClose
The template for the stucco reliefs Seasons of Feeding were leaf edges of fence bindweed worked on by thick-mouthed weevils. Both species are currently not very popular with people and are classified as weeds and pests, respectively.
Seasons of Feeding are convival stucco reliefs created from the digitally processed templates using various sediments such as clay, plaster, lime and chalk.
Season of Feeding shows the diversity of creative forces of different species, as well as an aesthetic of feeding beyond the taxonomic separation of species. Petrification by Sediment points to a future in which the opulence of the present will only be detectable in traces.
 Historically, floral stucco decorations in the 19th and 20th centuries were signs of good taste and natural history erudition, though most of them centered on humans and their needs.
 The materials used are inspired by paleobotanical research, which takes advantage of the preservative effect of sediment layers in riverbeds and uses them as an archive of botanical history. At any given moment, leaves fall into riverbeds and send evidence of the present into the future.
