Terrafuturism is a series of pseudo-scientific fieldwork experiments.
Leaves were collected and dried, then cut into squares and arranged into grid structures. Square shapes and grids are often used to understand and oversee nature, to impose an anthropocentric order onto landscapes. This project researches the contradiction between nature's complexity and people's urge to neatly organize and classify.
Mom’s Walk, Milíře, Český les
Milah asked her mother to collect leaves on one of her walks. Her mother lives in the Czech Republic, where she collected and dried the leaves. Her mother sent them to the Netherlands by post, where Milah organised them, named them, and cut them up into squares. They were then neatly arranged by species, from left to right, starting with the species represented by the highest amount of squares and ending with the species represented by the least amount of squares.
