Zoophyte is an art installation dedicated to the rediscovery of cryptozoology, a pseudoscience that deals mainly with recovering anecdotal stories about legendary animals and other claims rejected by the scientific community, creating a map of creatures that are "off-limits", invented or not discovered. The work intertwines scientific method, myth, folklore and tradition.
The work presents a phylogenetic tree diagrammatic of the world, which connects the unknown and speculative creatures that would have evolved from a sound frequency and a common ancestor (a zoophyte). Alongside these creatures, the artist exposes existing organisms of which very little is known despite the observation and scientific study, including plankton and microscopic organisms in the ocean, beings of vital importance for the terrestrial ecosystem. 86% of all land plants and animals and 91% of marine animals have not yet been named and catalogued.
Viewers will have the opportunity to deepen the research areas of specific crypts and scientific specimens through the use and analysis of various diagrams and data maps.
