Plankton Art by Louise Hibbert & Sarah Parker

Octavian C. on

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. This source of inspiration was revolutionised by the production of microscopes and technologies necessary for determining the patterning and order of biological structures on the minutest of scales.

"In PLANKTON ART designer makers Louise Hibbert and Sarah Parker-Eaton have formed a partnership to investigate plankton for themselves, and relate their observations in a unique collection of work made in wood, silver and gold.
