Metal and acetate
The art work is based on the University of Exeter’s research Systems Biology.
My work is driven by the interactive dynamics between art and science.
There is a tension between the aesthetic appeal of the structure and the reality of the detail.
The 2D structure is hung with acetate slides which are copies of antique and vintage glass microscope slides displayed in a way to draw the viewer in to this fascinating and often disturbing world. There is a kinetic nature to the work as the slides flutter slightly in any air movement around them.
