Prima Materia (2015 | 3 minutes | COLOR | SILENT)

Hand Processed.
Delicate threads of energy spiral and transform into mysterious microscopic cells of golden dust: these are the luminous particles of the alchemist’s dream.¬†PRIMA MATERIA is inspired by the haunting wonderment of Lucretius’: De Rerum Natura. It is an homage to the first, tentative photographic records that revealed the extraordinary nature of phenomena lurking just beyond the edge of human vision.
