Diatom Chains and the Dead Sea Scroll Fragments in Pink

Diatom Chains and the Dead Sea Scroll Fragments in Pink

©2017

This image is part of a series of mixed-media digital prints bringing together two previously unseen and unknown elements in our world: one, the microscopic life in our waters that form the basis of all life, and the other, hidden texts that may have given rise to some of the important philosophical and spiritual thought of our contemporary culture. The imagery mixes photographic and hand-drawn images of plankton with Dead Sea Scrolls. Augmented Reality is a part of the work, revealing source materials and context. Produced with input from the Menden-Deuer lab of Oceanography at the University of Rhode Island.

Exhibited:
