            Abstract

            The primary purpose of my doctoral visual art project is to uncover the inherent features of water that are invisible to the eye through using the Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) and, by doing so, to use the process of evaporation as an alternative and unusual artistic method of visually presenting the composition of water. In particular, I consider micro-scale drops of water from different aquatic systems after evaporation in an attempt to discover morphological features of the patterns related to water contamination. My artistic intervention of a scientific process through experimenting with the SEM is a way to find what potentially different things my images can say about water to a viewer. My practice aims to draw attention to the qualities of water through enhanced visual details, their interpretation, and differentiation between water samples. By exploring the nature of the SEM, the implications of the digital era to representation data in science and the interplay between the indexical and iconic modalities in the process of evaluating scientific photomicrographs, I try to imbue them with new meanings and to use scientific photography as a creative source of communication to the general public.
