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.
Prunus avium, geographical distribution
For this fieldwork experiment, Milah observed the geographical distribution of Prunus avium (wild cherry). In an area with self-imposed borders, the plant’s leaves were collected. They were then dried and transformed into a grid structure, depicting the species’ geographical distribution.
