It was great to work with Nicole as she developed this custom print, and we were thrilled with how it turned out! I'm not sure how many artists would be willing to take on the task of creating a rhizosphere, but Nicole was able to create a beautiful piece that encapsulates the wonderful world of plant roots and soil bacteria!
Fascinations with the invisible world of microbiology.
In my practice I am fascinated with the natural world — a big portion of which is made up of bacteria, viruses and protozoa.
This fascination started with the nature documentary Wonders of Life with host Brian Cox. In this series Cox speaks about a protozoa microbe called Paramecium which swims in fresh water and consumes bacteria. Paramecium move with cilia, which are like tiny hairs that surround their whole body and propel them forwards and backwards. If you have ever seen a video of paramecium you may understand why I became particularly obsessed with them — they are both so strange and yet very captivating!
From that point on I was hooked and fascinated with this nearly invisible world. I have dedicated my art practice to prints inspired by the beauty and intricacies of this often unseen world.
Nicole Edmond is an emerging artist and recent graduate from The Alberta College of Art and Design. She works mainly within the realm of print-media and explores the invisible microscopic world that surrounds our everyday lives with this medium.
