Morphosis is related to our living as one of the most important growing stage we will go through. The idea of morphosis is a matter of evolution, how a shape, material, human, insect will change with or without an external factor.
The silkworm is one of the most iconic insect experiencing a morphosis during his entire evolution. He is born as a worm but then morph in a butterfly arrived at maturation.

Within the silk industry most of the Bombyx Mori are killed in order to extract the silk from the cocoon, what if we let the worm become a butterfly?
How can we use this material differently and celebrate the morphosis of the insects?

The piece has been made by an accumulation of hundreds of silkworm’s cocoons and are then varnished with a thin layer of a natural honeybee bio resin. The slow process of the making of the piece underline the beauty of the insect world and defend a slow process in the making of those alien look pieces.
