»Man has used light and glass lenses to invent the device to observe objects too small to see with the naked eye. This is how a rich world of textures and details opened up to him, and it changed our view of the world. More than two hundred years old habitat of the Botanical garden is a home to different species of animals and plants. It's a location that easily leads us into the microscopic world of the local ecosystem. Light and light refractions reveal a fairytale world of microscopically tiny animals. In cooperation with the research platform Proyecto Agua, I design the hybrid nature of two geographically different environments. I'm interested in the relations of colour/spectral elements and light textures in symbiosis with the moving information of a localized biotope, invisible to the naked eye. Digitized colourful effects of light dictate the movement of the protozoa and thus show the way through the hybrid cross-sections between nature and technology. Employed research methods create intersections of worlds that in structure and content mirror the ideas of hybridity and kinetics of form. The visitor is offered a contemplation on nature, digital light interventions and biologically determined processes of a local microcosmos."
