Web project

In July 2001, we were invited by Boréal Art/Nature to research and do the pre-production for a new web project, based on graphic work of Ernst Haeckel, a 19th-century artist and biologist (1834-1919).

Original objects and natural phenomena discovered and observed on site at La Minerve, Québec are digitized with a video camera and scanner onto a portable computer. The juxtaposition of these elements are grouped into a series of 2D computer studies for the web, including animations, video and text, inspired by the progression of associative and formal lithographic works which make up the KunstFormen der Natur series elaborated by Haeckel from 1899 to 1904.

Our fascination for this portfolio of strange and beautiful imagery is because it is usually invisible to the naked eye.
