It’s been 4 months since I last posted and I’m continuing to research ideas for my project about medicines from the sea. In doing so, I’ve been playing with shapes and colors of many of the micro-organisms one might find under the microscope.
These shapes are washi that’s been hand-dipped in pigmented wax, then hand-cut to create cellular shapes.
This process, always evolving, hasn’t totally revealed itself yet in terms of where this installation might end up.
So, I keep working with space, shape and color.

I just began growing my own micro-organisms in Petri dishes – stay tuned for images!
