Carla Stehr - Microscape 3
Artist Statement: Microscopes manipulate light so that we can visualize objects far too small for our unaided eyes to see. Electron microscopes use television-like technology to convert electrons to light. This piece is inspired by a pattern of microscopic ridges seen on the back of a spider with a scanning electorn microscope. Without this manipulation of light, we would never know that incredibly beautiful microscopic patterns exist in unexpected places.
Materials & Techniques: Cotton fabric and wool batting were free motion stitched with white cotton thread. Multiple layers of fabric paint and water soluble colored pencil were applied after stitching.
Dimensions: 31" x 23"
Photographer: Carla Stehr
