These works have been inspired by a trip to Tonga, swimming with humpback whales. This current series of works is entitled ‘Plankton’. In these works, she seeks to make the minuscule, visible. By shining a light on the aesthetic beauty in the unseen life forms that underpin our existence, she hopes to reinforce our interconnectedness and reliance on the microscopic world.
Copepods are a group of small crustaceans found in nearly every freshwater and saltwater habitat. Some species are planktonic (inhabiting sea waters), some are benthic (living on the ocean floor), a number of species have parasitic phases, and some continental species may live in limnoterrestrial habitats and other wet terrestrial places, such as swamps, under leaf fall in wet forests, bogs, springs, ephemeral ponds, puddles, damp moss, or water-filled recesses of plants (phytotelmata) such as bromeliads and pitcher plants. Many live underground in marine and freshwater caves, sinkholes, or stream beds. Copepods are sometimes used as biodiversity indicators.
