Diatomea prints

A series of prints from the aDiatomea project, an artificial life system that uses various methods and notions of a-life research. The basic principle of aDiatomea is that every aspect of it is entirely mathematically generated and thus it is not created purposefully as an art piece but as a complex system that takes a life of its own. These artificial organisms are based on actual unicellular organisms known as Diatoms. These beautiful microscopic creatures are constructed using the superformula, an equation that can reproduce organic forms. Visually the prints refer to Victorian microscopy art and Ersnt Haeckel's illustrations.

Each print is available in limited editions on museum quality Hahnemühle Photo Rag paper and each comes with a certificate of authenticity. Prints are produced and shipped via creativehub.io who are end-to-end carbon neutral and partner with the World Land Trust to protect natural habitats.
