Yggdrasil, Axis Mundi. 2018. Live spirulina algae, water, plastic, netting, sound, soil, cloth, performance, wood, wax, concrete.
Installed in St. James Hatcham Church in London, this project is an installation of recycled plastic tubes filled with live, edible, Spirulina algae. Referencing the mythological tree Yggdrasil, the work demonstrates how plants function as an Axis Mundi, linking together all other forms of life, connecting animals, humans, the earth, they sky, and the stars. Via photosynthesis, plants transform solar energy into bio mass and oxygen, producing the physical atmosphere, within which all higher animal life is possible.
