Mat(t)er* Photobook, explores how nature information is transmitted, wich ones are their struggels and updates? It’s language, are the signs of carbon, nitrogen and phosphorus, water and other chemicals, as well as hormones – all of that is information as well.The physical world seems to operate independently of our possibilities of interpretation and understanding.

The oceanic relationship between a mother and her child is extended beyond by symbiotic interconnections of complex systems, which together create a single body of infinite physical pathways. A world of mutual connection between individuals, not only of the same species or nature, that functions as a digital network but of huge sophistication.

*A play on mother/matter.
