  2. 'MICRO/MACRO' is a collaborative video projection installation made in conjunction with the visual performance collective "Zygosis".
    The video projections juxtapose the coexisting relationship between micro and macro worlds using only still photography.
    The installation is to be played simultaneously on adjacent walls.

    'MACRO'-This time lapse sequence explores the stars and space while giving perspective to our place among these celestial bodies.
    The sequence was over 10,000 images, one every 10 sec., and assembled in After Effects.
    It was captured between the hours of 11pm-7:30am in the Blue Ridge Mountains of West Virginia.

    'MICRO'-These photographs explore abstract and discarded materials that manifest into celestial bodies and obscure microcosmic worlds.
    These sequences were shot using a macro lens, assembled using After Effects and later edited in Final Cut.
