Organic Chemistry, Marta Ferracin

Organic Chemistry uses sound and luminescent sculpture to create an enchanting and immersive habitat along the creek in the beautiful display gardens.  The work is made from pipettes and other materials reminiscent of chemistry compounds, and is both grounded and suspended in trees overhang the water, creating an animated ecosystem that slowly glows in the dark.

This work aims to create a sense of wonder and awareness for the environment by highlighting the bioluminescence that occurs among the fireflies, glow worms and fungi that live in the bush.  The individual elements are possibly a newly evolved biological species, that have become a wondrous and ephemeral ecosystem.
