A 10-print folio
In a coincidence that has defined my life, I read Guy Murchie's Music of the Spheres, discovered photography, and stumbled into Zen and the great Tao at about the same time. Learning photography through the microscope, I was struck how Murchie's description of the vast cosmos looked so remarkably like what I was photographing in the tiny worlds in a drop of pond water. Seeing photographs of the great nebulae through the telescope reminded me of the amoeba under the coverslip. These similarities gave scientific testament to the words of Lao Tzu that, "The great Tao flows everywhere, to the left and to the right." Everywhere, including the cosmically vast and the microscopically small. Science, photography, Zen. Weaving these threads has been the constant theme of my artmaking ever since.
