In this series of drawings, I visualize as a single organism, interspecific relationships fundamental to non-human life cycles. Our limited understanding of ecological systems and western tendency to set boundaries and sort humans and non-humans into discrete categories, creates the need for technologies of visual rectification that allow humans to observe and acknowledge interspecific alliances.

Ficus erecta (fig in general) and fig wasps from the superfamily Chalcidoidea, who are responsible for pollinating the fig flower, building an intricate mutualist relation.
Bertholletia excelsa (Brazil nut tree) and bees from the genus Bombus (bumblebees), who cross pollinate its flowers.
Syagrus weddelliana (coco de macuco) and Tinamus solitarius (macuco, or solitary tinamou) are related according to the Serra dos Órgãos Natinal Park local community.
