Almost There By Rogerio Miranda
“Try and picture this: one nanometre equals 10−9 metres; an atom measures 1/10.000 of a bacteria; a bacteria is 1/10.000 the size of a mosquito. Even on this little scale, the matter is still capable of changing physical and chemical properties. Colour, electric conductivity, resistance. Our inability to comprehend such small numbers makes us wonder about the limits of life and non-life. Add this to the pressing considerations on the advance of Biogenetic, Nanotechnology and our control over nature, and you have the origins of this work. To explore these questions and immerse our thoughts in such a micro world, this project uses Macro photography as its primary tool. ” says Rogerio Miranda about his work ‘Almost There’.
