These photos were taken of miscroscopic plankton that the artist collected on her travels around the world (2010-2013). They have become muses for her sculptures as well as works in their own right. It was through this work that the artist realized how prevalent micro-degraded plastic was in the planets waters, as it was prevalent in all of her samples, no matter how remote.
Materials: photographs of microscopy.
