‘co-worm-ing’ is a collaborative digital production by Emily Simek, 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 are 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 content can be produced using devices that are readily available (like your phone).
‘co-worm-ing’ is a working process rather than a fixed outcome.
