Welcome to Exploring the Invisible. I’m a Liberal Scientist/Artist who’s work explores the deep connections of the natural world with humankind. Most of my work is often created in collaboration with Nature, so that it becomes a co-author in the processes, and from a deep understanding of the science that I use. My goal is simple, to explore the inherent creativity of the natural world and to reveal its subtle, and usually hidden narratives, and above all to reveal its wonder. My hope is that my works will allow the interested observer to perceive biological phenomena that would otherwise be perpetually invisible, so that the hidden machinations of the natural world are brought to light. In many cases my work involves creative collaborations with microbes and bacteria, but I have also worked with larger lifeforms such as Caddisfly Larvae, Wasps, Snails Slugs, Ants, “intelligent” Slime Moulds, and Birds.
“A human being is part of the whole, called by us “universe,” limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest – a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a prison, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons close to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from our prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all humanity and the whole of nature in its beauty.”
