The Similarity of Parallel Worlds, 2011. Installation-hand blow, sandblasted glass domes with two videos.
The Similarity of Parallel Worlds visually explores when viewed through a microscope a single cell can bear an unnerving similarity to the Earth’s Sun as seen through a solar telescope. They appear worlds apart and inextricably linked. Tethered to one another in such a way that causes us to question their relationship. As we further examine the science of environmental change it becomes apparent that these two worlds are more influential then their scale infers.
Research for this work has been collated with Dr Judy Callaghan at Monash Micro Imaging, Dr Alina Donea at the Monash Centre for Stellar and Planetary Astrophysics in conjunction with NASA Solar Dynamics Observatory.
