Permeating Ecology

Remi Siciliano

Siciliano presents a series of works arising from playful collaborations with photographic materiality, non-human organisms, and natural forces. Fungal networks grow through 35mm negatives documenting landscapes, while moisture softens and encourages the film emulsion to peel. Images emerge at the meeting point of growth and decomposition.

Permeating Ecology explores the value within multispecies collaboration. By Siciliano intentionally relinquishing technical control within her practice, other organisms and natural processes interact with photos away from human influence. The artist becomes just one of the many forces at play in the process of cultivating images.
