Artist Statement:

    My body of work presents the essence of nature from various microscopic structures, illustrating the substance of the world. A digital microscope was used to capture these complex forms of various plants and objects revealing the natural state of an organic system and visual movements that could not be seen with the naked eye. The Inner Essence is an experimental video that depicts the essence of nature through various microscopic structures, ultimately illustrating the totality of nature’s beauty beyond the surface. This exploration highlights the juxtaposition between the outsider’s perspective upon nature and the essence of nature itself through the lens of a microscope. I was fascinated by the manipulation of optic focuses and the ability to travel through what appears to be the underlying true worlds. This experimentation allows me to observe in contemplation and speculation of nature’s mysteriousness.
