A Creative Pool project by Pascal Schonlau (United Kingdom)

Utilizing chemical reactions between a silicate solution and metallic salts, I worked on a photographic series that shows the sculptural qualities of microstructures similar to viruses, bacteria, or spores. These grown structures are unlike everything we are familiar with outside of this specific environment. The effect between alienation and painterly aesthetic is fluent as we discover familiar organic shapes dissolving into bizarre abstraction.
