porcellana haeckeliana

Radiolarians are minuscule unicellular organisms that float in the ocean depths.
They create intricate exoskeletons of the most abstract and incredible shapes.
Porcellana Haeckeliana is a hommage to Ernst Haeckel, a XIX century naturalist who spent thousands of hours observing these creatures through the microscope and drew wonderful and inspiring illustrations
In the project, which was a temporary installation, more than 40 little black and white illustrations were mounted on a cardboard artificial rock set in a dark room; a strong light lit them from inside the structure to give the viewer the feeling of observing through a microscope.
