Finding Beauty In Negative Spaces

Julia Kristeva, author of Powers of Horror, examines the critical theory behind the human interest in the "abject". Abjection is the casting away or rejection based on mortality. It studies the relationship between object and subject. Weighting it as life or death. The judgment of abjected of objects can vary based on cultural differences as well as the idea of semiotics, what the "abjected" or the act of "abjecting" represents.

This series visits the beauty within the various textures found in rotting, decomposing objects. The presence of life and death, captured in one image. The death of an object/animal, and the birth growth of fungi. This is a graphic representation of the above.
