Utilising chemical reactions between a silicate solution and metallic salts I worked on a photographic series
that shows the sculptural qualities of microstructures similar to viruses, bacteria, or spores. These “grown” structures
are unlike everything we are familiar with outside of this specific environment. The effect between alienation and
painterly aesthetic is fluent as we discover familiar organic shapes dissolving into bizarre abstraction.
The Coronavirus outbreak is currently sparking a high public interest in virology and science, resulting in an abundance
of visuals about the pathogen. Seeing the microscopic elements, it’s quite intriguing thinking about
the permanent presence of complex microstructures surrounding us without being visible to our eyes.
