Based on Dr. Falkowski ´s project
Have you seen an invisible forest? In the ocean, the invisible forest marine phytoplankton plays a critical role in regulating Earth's climate. Every drop of water within 100 meters of the ocean contains thousands of free-floating microscopic plants called phytoplankton. Explore how human activities can alter the impact of phytoplankton in the carbon cycle on the planet, is crucial for predicting long-term ecological effects.
The body of work is composed by photography, video, object, print, sound and installation.
The Invisible Forest, Patagonia Series (2008)
shows a performance in the Argentine sea coast edited with marine phytoplankton, images in microscope enlargements.
The Invisible Forest, Blue Series (2009)
is a graphics production with extended microscopic images.
The Invisible Forest, Antarctic Series (2010)
shows different settings with mannequins of cloth on a human scale, and replicas to macroscopic size of tiny algae (marine phytoplankton). The works propose return to look like pure beings in harmonic connection with our environment.

Project based on scientific research by Dr. Rodolfo del Valle, (DNA) Due to climatic variations, soil-permafrost-frozen is suffering unusual internal disturbances, such as changes in its structure, water content and ice wedges, so it is necessary to use geo-radar (GPR) that reaches up to approximately 15 m depth to identify these changes. The impact of environmental change in the NE of the Antarctic Peninsula has caused a loss of ice of 4000 km3 the last 31 years. The use of wind turbines to produce electricity will reduce CO2 emissions dramatically into the atmosphere. This will help mitigate the greenhouse effect.
Geo Radar was registered in photography and HD video.
