Information culled from digital archives, the human genome, satellite feeds, and data banks comprise the cultural fertilizer that this work proposes. It questions the meaning of and the connections between information stored in all available media.

What do we store away with each passing second in our brains, on discs and servers, and the genetic code? What sorts of connections are generated by this content? Considering contemporary reality as a process of hybridization and appropriation, the work reflects on the relationship between digital archives, the human genome, satellite feeds, and databases, the amalgam that fertilizes the perfect humus.
