"Nature's Filters" explores the complex world of organisms in the universe of water. The images are symbolic markers of a balanced healthy aquatic environment. The artwork takes the form of a floating glass canopy installation at the entrance of the lab.
It embraces my fascination for water and its restorative, reflective and metaphorical qualities. It offers a means to explore approaches to art that educate the community about the universe of water as the primary source of life and the process of protecting our environment. It transforms the technical experts experience into art that speaks to memory, mystery and natural influences unique to the region.
