Working with plankton has expanded my knowledge in both science and art. Collecting and analyzing data in the Nature Lab have revealed the role that organisms play in a given ecosystem. Our environment is composed of a series of complex interconnected systems. The implementation of art concepts with scientific information resulted in a clear and compelling representation of factual data. The use of photographic representation in this course enabled me to convey accurate and visually captivating images that represent the study of plankton with an artistic lens. By merging these two disciplines we can succesfully relate and communicate the relevance of plankton in today’s world.
