co-worm-ing is a collaborative digital production with Joy Zhou and a mobile worm farm at Testing Grounds, exploring how to produce digital art through the process of composting.

In a series of digital installations, production materials were locally compiled, collectively consumed, edited and reused over time, much like organic materials in a compost heap. 

The work invites us to consider how we handle large amounts of digital content, what our metabolising processes are, and how nutrient-rich material can be produced using devices that are readily available (like your phone).
