Pathogenicity (long listed for the Lumen Art Prize) is an artistic exploration of the microbiological analysis of water quality.
It explores the repetitious nature of lab analysis, its cylindrical equipment and the rich luminous nature of the reactive work.
Striving to visualise the invisible, the imagery combines fact with fiction to reflect elements of the microscopic, ranging from waterborne bacterium to its imaginative journey into human cells.
It unveils a visceral spectacle or artificial aperture, that provides us with an aesthetic portal into human health concerns and the analysis of a globally fragile and finite resource.
