In remnants (entropy collection) , 2018, Marta Ferracin and Lisa Tolcher have displaced their organic and inorganic experiments like they were in a scientific laboratory. In those cell wells, both artists are creating entropy in a natural and artificial way after oxidising weeds (Ferracin) and metals (Tolcher). Dr. Robert Baker - their mentor from the University of Sydney - comments that " ... A big difference between the two, however is that while weeds can exist in harmony with their ecosystem, the entropy price of making metal is paid for by the production of carbon dioxide which made end up causing the whole house of cards to collapse."
