Single-Cell Mingle Disco
Single, as in solo and microscopic, these cells swim to the beat under the disco glow.
A playful sparkle from above uplifting our gaze and perspective on the primary producers powering the base of our planet. If single-cells can help provide over half of Earth’s oxygen from the sunlit layer of the ocean, imagine what we can do together.
Each sculpture magnifying the micro-organisms is hand-built ceramic and completed after multiple firings. Installation adapts to each environment and space to keep their groove going. Our single-cells have been working to support our planet for millions of years. Shining light on this precious ecosystem sustains us all.
