"I chose cochineal, acids, rust and oak apple tannins because of the way they create cosmic interventions by playing simply with pH. They also represent all of the elements. Cochineal is animal, primal. Oak apples connect you to earth, they're grounding and represent boundaries and warmth. The oak wasp lays its egg in the oak tree, then when the wasps emerge the nuts fall providing us with symbiotic nutrient rich tannin. Rust or Metals and acid and water."
