Simone Weil described “decreation” as “undoing the creature in us” – an undoing of self. The word refers to a simultaneous occurrence of creation and destruction, each relying upon the other. 

Decreation is not only a way of approaching or revealing an uncreated world; it is also an act of uncreating the self in order to allow the world to reveal itself fully.

Each of these collages are made from the “decreated” flesh of a single magazine advertisement.
