Fluid Matter — BAD Award Exhibition at MU Artspace

As announced I am currently exhibiting my new work Estuary and my research project Genesis at MU Artspace. The exhibition is on show until February 26th, 2017.

The colors in the installation Estuary change over time. I have just reinstalled the installation, be sure to pass by and observe the beauty of decay, and the bloom of life that is happening as a result of the parameters set for the artwork.  All the colors as shown in pictures are real and have not been altered by a filter or otherwise.
