Microscopy Works

Photo credit: donna davis

As part of The Plant Room project I am exploring the microscopic world of each of the five endangered plants.  The image above is of a flower from the Notelaea ipsviciensis (Cooneana Olive) at x400 magnification.

I am in the process of creating a projection work - using microscopic images of each flower from the five species.  I hope to project the work onto the outside of the planetarium building in the gardens later in the year.  As you can see these micro worlds are reminiscent of the beautiful nebulas we see in space - such an awe inspiring view into the hidden life of plants.
