Life of grass by Mathilde Roussel is a series of organic sculptures made out of soil and wheat grass seeds. The sculptures are intended to show the effects of transformation of the material as a metaphor of the transformation and decay of the body over time.
[quote]Through these anthropomorphic and organic sculptures made of soil and wheat grass seeds, I strive to show that food, it’s origin, it’s transport, has an impact on us beyond it’s taste. The power inside it affects every organ of our body. Observing nature and being aware of what and how we eat makes us more sensitive to food cycles in the world – of abundance, of famine – and allows us to be physically, intellectually and spiritually connected to a global reality.[/quote]
