Life Under The Ice will bring to light the microscopic world of Antarctica. The artist will image extremophile microorganisms endemic to Antarctica through macrophotography and microscope photograpy and video, and present them to the public in a novel way - turning viewers into Antarctic explorers. This interactive web exhibition will seek to elicit the same sense of wonder that scientists feel about how even the smallest, simplest life forms of Antarctica, shaped by their harsh home environments, are also immensely complex.
