When trees, leaves and other parts of nature decay, they transform into material that is returned to the earth to become a food source for decomposers. Learn the process of decomposing using microscopes and deep observation, then catalogue these observations, and how they make you feel, in your own hand-bound book made of envelopes. Fill these envelopes with pressed decaying leaves and flowers along with letters you write and allow to decay.
