micro

The microscopic world has always fascinated me.

I remember well a childhood experience of looking through a National Geographic magazine.

The images presented to me were those of a pin head, magnified by x1000.

The images of the rounded steel, depicted not a sharpened point,

but contours and abrasions which served to indicate a visual history of the object.

They opened my eyes to a world beyond my immediate reach

and instilled in me long lasting desire to explore that which lay beyond my immediate senses.
