Biochromes 2008



Fusion / Division 2008

In the Fusion / Division series I explore issues and events we face every day that influence our thoughts and actions, on personal and collective scale. Various symbols, traditions or believes either unite or separate us from one another. I attempt to encourage the viewers to look into the works in search of familiar and unfamiliar imagery as well as to embrace and connect with their inner beauty, energies and spiritual existence. I focus on the significance of fascinating changes relevant to the cycle of life and death by collaborating with nature to create these ‘biochrome’ images, using vegetation in different stages of decomposition.



The Dead Sea 2008

The Dead Sea image is inspired and created by environmental processes - a fusion of art and science. This work came to life by tracing activities of the microbes during organic decay. Microorganisms are crucial in the cycle of life, death and renewal and are ever-present even in the most extreme places, even in The Dead Sea. I was always intrigued by The Dead Sea, the lowest point on Earth, where aquatic and plant life cannot exist. At the same time however, the sea offers an abundance of minerals and specific atmospheric conditions providing uniquely beneficial health effects. Nature never fails to inspire and fascinate me.
