RADIOLARIANS : A Drop Can Make A Universe
Arts - 10.10.2016
RADIOLARIANS is an experimental macro short which is exclusively made with ink, alcohol and rapeseed oil.
It shows extraordinary organic forms and figures which are almost invisible to the eye. They remind one of Ernst Haeckels Radiolarians which are part of his fascination monograph “Artforms in Nature” from 1904.
The behavior and movements of these animate beings are captured with a high resolution camera and a macro lens. By inverting the picture in post, the rich colors and textures of the elements are brought to life. What you see are drops of ink, decomposing into thousands of microscopic dots which behave like an organized entity in perfect order. A tiny mesh going into rest position, sinking in a sheen of oil before finally disappearing.
