Malus Domesticae

The evil of domestication or the domestication of evil. The apple is an object that throughout the History of the humanity has been related to negative conceptions like the sin (Adam and Eve), the murder (Snow White), the suicide (Alan Turing), the discord in the Greek mythology, among others. In none of these cases the apple is an autonomous being, what has always led to these negative connotations is the influence that humankind exerts on it, its domestication for foreign purposes to itself. In this piece I procure to show this influence by creating a microsystem inside a photography, impeding the natural process of decomposition of an apple made with two other natural apples (one red, one green), conformed by a structure of domestication with orthogonal and reticular projections.
