Statement These are forms covered with biofilm: a zoogleal mat that forms in the process of brewing the health tonic known as kombucha. While brewing the tonic, a combination of yeast and bacteria join to form the biofilm, which regenerates itself and is harvested every few days and applied. The tonic is then bottled and enjoyed for consumption. An internal and external relationship between the bi-product and finished health tonic for consumption. An internal is present in my life. The forms are made to look old and of unknown origin in order to remind oneself of the billions of years the earth has been floating in outer space, decomposing/regenerating, and to use our own short time on this planet wisely.
