Compositive investigates the potential in harvesting wasted time, utilising this dormant energy to produce new outcomes. A collaborative exercise with several thousand worms and some of my unknown fellow painting students, Compositive used discarded paintings from bins on campus and from my own personal archive to imagine a future without failure - or at least where success can be salvaged. Combined with my own household green waste, my gang of Eisenia Fetida (red wrigglers) worked tirelessly on this project, breaking down the matter to create new, marketable commodities.
