There is an engagement with the ceramic vessel. It is a tool in service of the facilitation and ritualization of nutrient breakdown. As discards, the eggshells have already been stripped of their primordial function as membranes that hold and protect the formation of life. They are ground into a fine, digestible powder—ready-to-consume calcium—an act that comments upon the potential of processing death through digestion. The subsequent act of eating the eggshells proposes autonomy over our fertility through a complex, unbalanced ecological interdependence where nutrient breakdown is elemental for the transformation/creation of life.
