suckerPUNCH: describe your project:
metagardens : monstruosa (monster in spanish) is an extraterrestrial visitor, a predatory creature whose primary goal is to propagate its own species. to achieve this it uses the sophisticated biomorphology of carnivorous plants as living hosts. it colonises them, implanting its own offspring inside their tissues before erupting into a more powerful biomachine.
at the moment it remains dormant waiting for the perfect conditions in which to infiltrate and replicate itself across our environment.
