EYE OF THE BEHOLDER
Ceramics 2018 - Ongoing
In the last 4 years over 180 biofluorescent species have been discovered, including the critically endangered Hawksbill turtle. Human beings are unable to see this bioflurescence with the naked eye, we can see this phenomenon only when using a yellow filter that removes the blue range of light in the ocean.
Eye of the Beholder aims to question what we take for granted, considering perception, its effect on our lives and the way we live in the world. There is often more to life than meets the eye, sometimes all we need do is change our perspective and we are able to see and experience life in an entirely new light.
This piece speaks of the beauty of coral, the tragedy of coral bleaching and the absolutely mind blowing magnificence of bioflourescence.
