Valerie Furnham

MA work

Between the micro and the macro, our world is in a constant state of flux. Between these two parallel dimensions is our body, unable to enter the stars or dive into the Petri dish.

The source of my work is the intrinsic volatility and unpredictability of the chemical reaction, the unseen and invisible that make up our very being, a moment of wonder created out of a scientific event.

My images play on the senses, becoming the beat of the heart, the movement of the iris, the vibration of the eardrum, a meeting point where scientific principles become physical emotions.
