Continua | Visualizing Universal Scale

  •  JPH8069-Edit

  • CONTINUA is inspired by the tremendous scope of scientific exploration. As a lens-based visual artist, I focus on the broad range of instruments used to capture scientific images. In order to illustrate the varying scales of visual scientific inquiry, I used imagery representative of devices and techniques employed in scientific imaging from micro to macro. These images were captured by devices like electron microscopes and high-definition cameras mounted to satellites exploring the reaches of space. Human-scale elements are also included in this piece as we owe our ability to engage in scientific exploration to the complex machinery behind our own eyes.
