Out of Balance

Inkjet printed photograph

Out of Balance is a photograph of sliced grapes dipped in glow powder, installed in the dark to mimic the glowing microscopic appearance of a type of phytoplankton called dinoflagellates. These plankton create the beautiful blue bioluminescence one can sometimes see at night in ocean waves. With this project, I try to bring awareness to their abnormal blooms and depletions caused by the ocean’s acidic and temperature changes.
