In early 2016 I was (once again) confronted with my health. Yet it was not an illness to be cured. It was a physical misalignment that was at the root of a lot of suffering, pain, and unwellness I had experienced in my life. With the perspective of a second chance, a chance at healing, growing, and re-wiring of my nervous system, I felt the urgent need of an artifact that would embody my wish for blossoming. Coming fresh to art school I was confronted with my age peers and their ability and “healthy” development. I instantly hoped that at 24/25 years old I still had the possibility of growth and actualization. What followed in April to September 2017 was a delicate and turbulent journey of rebuilding a body out of earth, in a 1:1 scale according to my body measurements and weight. The body is divided into parts, only the plants sowed into the body connected its parts.
