This project was my first experiment with the Sandmarc macro lens. These lenses easily adjust to any smartphone for unique photos and videos. Originally I was interested in filming the textures and odd funky grooves in seashells.
I decided to film the shells in water thinking the bubbles and the water would make the scene look more natural. What I didn't realize is tiny microbes would still be clinging to the surfaces of these shells instantly coming back to life upon being submerged.
The shells were vessels from another world teeming with life waiting to be reawakened. Polishing up the footage in post production this project in close up texture observation transformed into a deep dive into an anti gravity particle environment filled with alien microbial life.
