Ceratium with Ocean Debris
Working with samples of Certatium Lineatum provided by the Menden-Deuer lab at the University of Rhode Island, I digitally “captured” swimming specimens using a microscope and video camera in the Edna Lawrence Nature Lab at the Rhode Island School of Design.
The backgrounds and color shifts serve to make the images more lively, and to give viewers the sense of the complex environment of the ocean waters that are home to these microscopic plankton.
