I created a colored artificial leaf of silk organdy and imagined the process in which the leaf was used as nutrients for the growth of bacteria and decomposed into humus by microorganisms. The humus itself is not nutritious, but it is home to many microorganisms that nourish the soil, and leaf fibers create space and soften the soil. Some are produced by culturing, while others are broken down and disappear. There is a balance in natural activities.
