Alexander Paul de Ronde— Heavy Garden
Posted on July 11, 2012
Alexander Paul de Ronde draws on science, collage and eroticism to create his interdisciplinary explorations into photographic techniques.
Heavy Garden is an interdisciplinary exploration of photographic technique. This series of foil photo transfers was created by imaging various plants and flowers under a scanning electron microscope in a biology lab. Afterwards, I overlayed the microscope imagery onto a nude human form and transfered the resulting photograph onto aluminum foil. Likewise to my other works, Heavy Garden encompasses elements of science, eroticism, and collage. I am heavily inspired by contemporary Japanese photography, specifically Nobuyoshi Araki, as well as the BioArt movement.
Medium: 8.5×11 prints on aluminum foil.
