Poets Stephen Collis and Jordan Scott left copies of Charles Darwin's On the Origin of Species to decay in five distinct ecosystems in British Columbia. A year later, they photographed what remained, reading poetry into nature's "rewriting" process and documenting the gorgeous detritus in Decomp, a long poem in prose and color photographs. Darwin is an eye amidst graphed genera seeing the web it is woven thereof. A matted scrap of printed material, shit, soil and leaf rot--all dried, bleached and curled up at small edges. Stephen Collis is the author of four books of poetry and a collection of essays, Dispatches from the Occupation. Jordan Scott is the author of Silt and Blert, which explores the poetics of stuttering.
