Vegetalia Mirabilia is a collection of memories constructed around my first real microscope experiences, emotion and wonder passing through the years until today. Images that suffered repeated alterations and recomposing through perception, stocking, recollecting; images now reconstructed through jewelry in a layout with its own ontology where the microscopic and macroscopic can simultaneously coexist at the same visual level.
The pieces are constructed in one plane to metaphorically borrow the bi-dimensionality of pressed plants in a journal. Granulation, filigree elements and pre-existing findings are technically sustaining the “zoom” areas applied on the macro structures.
Under the lenses of my microscope passed many samples of things, but the plants tissues unveiled a parallel world of a perfect, pure beauty. A platonic beauty as if the macroscopic world would be a failed copy of the micro-universe.
*Please bear in mind that each piece is technically quite unique and the pictures are shown for exemplification purposes only. Similar but not identical piece can be made at your size on demand.
