Poaceae is a digital personification of natural growth. “Poaceae”, the taxonomic name for grass, invites the viewer to observe its thin verdant blades creep and encumber the naked space before it. Displayed on a CRT TV, this piece emulates feelings of a window to another universe, or a lens to peer through of a high powered microscope. Poaceae is slow moving and organic; an insatiable force pulls you in to watch and keep watching. Witness its unrelenting growth as your periphery evolves from a vacant surface to an electric biome.
