Germinating ‘edible foods’

(Personal fine-art project)

The idea was to capture dried beans/kernels that are starting to germinate.

i used a very graphical approach, the composition & styling are minimalistic,with dark umber tones.

Also made a second variant from to start off the process in sepia tones.

 

A little background info off the process:
”Dried beans & kernels In the edible form as we know them  are in a state of sleep, when exposed to water/oxygen/temperature,the embryo inside off them wakes up, during the first development it needs gravity to determine the direction of growth, to start the germination & rooting it uses all the spare food from inside the bean, finally the shell dies & the embryo becomes a new life form”
