Disintegration should be regarded as transformation, not necessarily as decay. Something modifies its morphology and properties, sometimes gaining new meanings, thus becoming something else.
I had an old cherry tree in the backyard that dried so I had to take it down and cut it into logs that I forgot for years under a jasmine bush. They became nest for spiders, food and protection for insects, fungi support or shelter for snails.
Rediscovering them, I found their changes intriguingly photogenic and I had to catch on film as less modified as I could their raw presence. They are the confirmation of the theory that nothing is lost , everything is transformed.
