Artist Statement:


    Looking through a microscope, we find the micro cosmos where many curious things exist: snowflakes, pollen, germs, and so on. Microbes such as freshwater algae are very interesting. Although their geometric cell structure is very simple, they reveal a variety of artistic forms. This work is an attempt to use original software to represent a micro world. Square metaballs (meta-cubes) were used as the main algorithm for modeling the algae-like objects.
