This Tree Dandelion Transverse Sectioned stained blue photographed under compound microscope 40x ul.
Discusses evolution through the icons of science, the microscope and the Petri dish, we are given a window to investigate life and death, explored on the physical biological level, to a cellular one. Cells, DNA the Genome are becoming commodities; a ‘bio-archive’ that is extracted, garnered, patented and registered. At the core of the unseen is a Labyrinth of evolution. What you see is not always what is happening; in this work I use the microscope to explore the Tree Dandelion on a microscopic level. Its transference onto an aluminium substrate gives the work luminosity yet also speaks of the industrialisation of how contemporary society sees the world, a commodification of all living things
