Linda Westin – Illuminated dendrology _ Portraits of the woods

 

Linda Westin’s project ‘Illuminated dendrology I Portraits of the woods’ – ‘fluorescent neuronal dendrites in visionary primordial landscapes.

Inspired by her Ph.D. in neuroscience specialized in super-resolution fluorescence microscopy, the artist applies its sensitivity and methods to forests, rocks, plants, and stars, and by adding light to dark sceneries, enhances structure and makes new versions of reality visible.’

”In the middle of the forest there’s an unexpected clearing which can only be found by those who have gotten lost” (Tranströmer)
