Art from Science by karenkamenetzky

Years ago I became fascinated with the shapes, patterns, texture and lines found at the microscopic level.

In images zoomed into an extreme Electron Microscopic close up, I can imagine walking in and touching these real worlds (IF I were very shrunk down myself!).

Above are images of several types of cilia-hairlike structures that undulate and move things along so to speak.

When I create a new piece, there is always implied movement-some thing is changing or about to change-even though the image is static. Incorporating cilia sometimes helps me achieve this goal.

In this piece, Seed Dreaming I, I included all those bright green cilia to try to suggest movement and an aliveness.

Awesome photomicrographs. They look like underwater plants or creatures.
