So I’ve been continuing with the Morphoids this semester…. trying to get a more “animated” feeling. I’ve made quite a few this semester, with varying degrees of success, in terms of how much “life” they have. One of the first Morphoids I made this semester, Metamorphosis, seemed to have life, but be in a dormant stage. (Originally, I had these hanging from trees.)
Radiolaria, the next work, seems to have more of a potential at life, rather than a distinct feeling, as they seem to be more of a seed/pod type thing. Definitely plant related.
But, with both of these, I seem to have hit on a dormant part of life. They have the potential to grow or hatch and become something that is living, but they don’t seem to be “alive” on their own. I seem to have hit on a place with both of these where they “could be” but aren’t necessarily. Also, these two both sit on the line. Are they plant, or animal?
