On The Poetics of Water.

On The Poetics of Water. Here natural waters seem to vibrate with the biological activity of usually invisible microorganisms. Usually, unnoticed, and not considered, these lifeforms underpin the biology of all else that lives within or upon the waters.

Samples of a number of natural waters were taken and imaged with DIC microscopy at 100-times magnification.  In real-time the microbes appear as small illuminated motile (moving with apparent purpose) cells against a dark background. When imaged with algorithmic photography, the movement of these is converted into activity tracks that can be seen in motion in the videos, in which they appear as dualities, that is simultaneously combined particles and waves.
