The interior of The Ladies Society of Alchemical Agriculture takes its cue from the decorative exposition booths seen at 4-H fairs, and pairs horticulture with the culinary arts in the form of glass terrariums filled with regional plants and foods that over time develop into new and diverse eco-systems teeming with mold and fungi. Reminiscent of both an hearse and a carnival/gypsy wagon the carriage stands poised, oscillating between grief and celebration, entropy and growth.This work was made in collaboration with The Black Forest Fancies.
