“I have never been able to view and interpret scientific manifestations and empirical data from an objective standpoint. Usually, these attempts in the lab have led to excessive elevations into the stratospheres of imagination where personal drama trickles into the rational brain and surrealism takes the spotlight. The only way I have been able to express my scientific process is through cinematic exploration where microscopes, digital cameras and organisms of all sizes and complexity come together organically in symbiosis”.
