How Nature becomes Design? How infinitely small becomes a surface?

 

The concept turned on Sciences used at the service of Nature, and on an esthetic based on microscopy and bacteria. The notions of laboratory, biology, cell, but also evolution and transformation between organic and abstract shape,  are elemental. 

I was always interested in sciences and infinitesimal. What is here that we cannot see? What influences us in an invisible way? Bacteria have an important role on the human body, they protect and are essential to the survival of the human being. The development of a design from natural systems is a point very important in my work. I like the idea of creating from what we already have.
