“As contamination changes world-making projects,
mutual worlds and new directions may emerge”
Anna Tsing

Coloniae is a series of artifacts about the relationship between man and plant. The items in the series are conceived as dwellings for a colony, and as such are created with a predefined form. However, each structure is designed to interact with the plant it houses, allowing it to grow over it, redefining its appearance. Over time, the plant will begin to interact with the object through its roots and leaves, eventually colonising it. In this way, Coloniae rethinks the vase (and other complementary artifacts) as content rather than container, and the plants as agents in the definition of a hybrid organism co-participated by human action.
