Colligo: To Collect, Assemble, or Bring Together

Colligo is a collection of wild moss and flora, that is thoughtfully assembled, contained, and suspended in a mass of hanging glass bulbs. Our work focuses on fusing recycled objects with natural materials to explore the balance between nature and human society.The use of organic matter brings life into the the discarded, salvaged materials. ***The installation was also featured in an ad campaign for ABC Carpet and Home and in Kiesza's music video "No Enemiesz"
