Morphogenesis: art, science and environment, Rauma, Finland March - June 2015
Over the past five years I have been corresponding with scientists theoretical biologist Richard Gordon and Embryogeneticist Natalie Gordon located in Canada concerning diatoms. Finally, I was invited to meet scientists at the Gulf Specimen Marine Laboratory in Panacea, North East Florida.
Diatoms have been part of my research since 2000 when developing large scale sculpture, shelter and viewing platform based on diatoms for a King's Lynne regeneration scheme with SheilsFlynn Ltd.
This work is located on a thirty two acre industrial wasteland in the city centre.
