The Concept:

Based on the theory of evolutionary, denying that whether the process of evolutionary is to create a better species; from another viewpoint, it creates unknown species due to nature’s eco-balance. Using the organic molecular prototype made from plastic mixed materials, to mock the thin line between the evolutionary and degeneration of life.

Derrick invites families to create the unique ecology paintings, pointillism, on the round acrylic bowls using oil-based paint markers. He then secure those petri dishes work, woven together with nylon zip-ties, and become ecology molecular globes.
