Various experimentation processes allow me to represent

the energetic activity of living organisms. Electromagnetic photography (EM) hails from a long history of crossings between electricity and light frequencies, but other investigations also amplify the manifestations of energy captured in real time. Many researchers, inventors and botanists bring perspectives to my work with plants. But where science seeks to prove, art shows.
