Unnatural Phenomena
Miik Green and Chris Malajczuk
13 October - 9 December

 

A Guild On Show exhibition

Unnatural Phenomena is a collaborative exhibition featuring artist Miik Green and nanotechnologist Chris Malajczuk.

Green and Malajczuk have created a series of stunning works consisting of biological-inspired, small-scale sculptural works and a two-dimensional series of mixed-media works, representative of microscopic tissue's and cells. Drawing from the the scientific methods of Nobel Prize winning biochemist Christian B. Anfinsen, Green and Malajczuk have explored how the laws of thermodynamics inspire the formation of complex organic structures, capturing and conveying these notions in hydrophobic suspensions.

An epic sunset over the still, ancient waters of Shark Bay. This land is extremely vulnurable to sea level rise and increasing storm activity, being mostly low-lying sand dunes. These waters host an amazing amount of biodiveristy and are one of the most productive seagrass habitats on the planet.
