CANNABIS: A MICROCOSM OF HEALTH
Life, germinated seed (field view size: 0.44 x 0.66 in).
This series show the Cannabis sativa like unprecedented microspaces of a botanical, medicinal, cultural, and nutritional universe. An homage to the occult and little known potential of these fragments of nature, source of health and a target in phytopharmacology and neuroscience.
I express them in a intimate vision, as suggestive encounters in a trip to the microcosm of this plant, in different life cycles, from its germination to its flowering and reproduction.
The shape of its seed like a brain, brings to mind its psychotropic effects, and the role that the cannabis plays in neuropsychopharmacology and in the neuroscience in general.
Its root bursts vigorously and, in the sublime instant of the germination, its cotyledons rise and its true leaves open like wings about to take flight. One can't help but think of the cultural connotations of its use as a recreational drug.
Delicate spheres on top of poky promontories emerging from the skin, they are the trichomes, like a minute epicurean garden, acting as a true pharmacological reserve of dozens of different cannabinoids.
Like a bunch of bananas, the sporangia hang from the stamina of the male flower. Each contains thousands of microspheres of life, some shining like soap bubbles, and others they are shown as exoplanets.
Microlandscapes of health inside a tiny plant world.
As a medium I use the digital photography with the help of a microscope.
