Whether a chloroplast spinning inside a cell, or towering treetops swaying in the wind, the biosphere is filled with marvels perceived by the mindful eye. I train my camcorder, sometimes in conjunction with the microscope, on wonders seemingly too fantastical for Earth, and others harbouring beauty in simplicity.
Video takes us on precise journeys toward impossible visions as we follow the cinematographer’s eye. My process involves spontaneity more often than deliberate scene. When my peripheral awe-seekers catch a dew-speckled spiderweb, a circle of light dancing through a porthole, shadows flickering to life on a morning wall, I stop to capture these fleeting moments of the divine. Even when recording through microscopic lenses, I look for the cellular to take me by surprise, the magnified living processes unearthing another layer of order beneath the ordinarily tangible.
Ecology is my depth of focus, the geometry connecting science and art my focal point.
