Plankton as Art


Louise Hibbert works with wood and Sarah Parker-Eaton works with silver and gold. Separately and together, they create art inspired by microscopic plankton from the oceans.
Patterns and form in nature have inspired artists and designers throughout history. The microscopic drifting organisms that populate the oceans and great lakes, the plankton, are subject to very different physical forces to those that develop shape and form in larger organisms such as alleviaton of gravity. As a consequence they have developed unique forms, architectures, kinetics and complex symmetries uncommon in larger and terrestrial forms.
