With the earth on the verge of environmental collapse in the next generation’s forseeable future I’m presented with a need to create art and media that stirs inspiration to both value our environment and it’s future.  This feeling of impending doom recently coined as ‘Ecoanxiety’ I felt to be an appropriate name of this series.

‘Ecoanxiety- Micro Sand’ is inspired by beautiful shapes seen when sand is observed microscopically at 300x.
I was inspired to model and texture these shapes to craft a composition that represents an element of unseen beauty in our coastal environment, something as seemingly simple as sand has such a world of beauty lying beneath the reach of the human eye. 

It’s easy in our everyday lives to overlook significantly beautiful our surrounding environment flora and fauna is and why it's preservation is so imperative for future generations to appreciate and preserve.
