Project Description

Poiesis , algae and healing powders, light box, 1.5 degrees Art Exhibition, 2019 (Kaleidoscope Gallery, Sevenoaks and Trinity Theatre Tunbridge Wells)

Poiesis is inspired by the notion that we are created by starlight and stardust.  The light from the Big Bang penetrated the darkness and created the carbon.  This produced the microorganisms which created the blue green algae, whose photosynthetic activity brought oxygen, so all animate life could exist.  The word ‘Poiesis’ the root of our modern “poetry”, was first a verb, an action that transforms and continues the world.
