Forest immune system – 2021

These series of works are inspired by an article that I recently had an opportunity to read. It describes “forest immune system” as combination of chemicals that each individual tree produces to protect itself from bacteria and other unwanted pests. Being in a forest allows us to inhale these chemicals which also have a huge benefit for our health. Nature always helps us and it seems to me that we consistently keep taking it for granted. It also seems to me that we are far more similar to Nature than we think and that we can learn by observing certain mechanisms in Nature as much as we can learn by observing ourselves.

That being said, I wanted to create and visually represent these mechanisms by incorporating different organic forms that resemble both Nature and human into one and ties them together so that everything is connected and working like a single organism — the ultimate immune system.
