Department of Decay

Abstract

The following should be acknowledged as a manifesto and archive of the Department of Decay: an institution, research group, and laboratory dedicated to the universal advancement of all forms of decomposition. We believe that an understanding of our world at large begins with an eye trained under a microscope. It is at this scale where each of our explorations begins and it is here that we discover potential for reanimating the ruin.
