Microscopic Modern Art

A Mad Splash of Matter

Microscopic Modern Art was inspired when I purchased a home microscope with the intention to take a closer look at what’s actually going on around me. I collected bits of things from around my studio, placed them in a drop of water, and arranged them on a slide to create an image that struck me. I photographed the microscopic pictures to capture the moment on a deeper level and found myself lost in a mad splash of matter.

“Bright is the lady in white, who runs ahead of light. She leaves today in a general way, and arrives in style last night.”

 

*Quote is a modified version of the limerick: There was a young lady named Bright, Whose speed was far faster than light;She started one day in a relative way, And returned on the previous night.

~ A. H. Reginald Buller in Punch
