> DESCRIPTION

The Hunterdon Art Museum is pleased to present Laura McClanahan: Planktonic ConstructsPlanktonic Constructs features color photograms and video abstractions inspired by different species of plankton.  Using her darkroom enlarger as a microscope, and glass objects to represent microorganisms, the artist creates pictures that resemble various protists, plankton, diatoms and jellyfish.  She invites the viewer into a constructed world entirely of her own making that convincingly replicates a scientific investigation.  Two intriguing videos transform live jellyfish into a mesmerizing kaleidoscopic panorama.  These works reflect McClanahan’s interest in probing life’s origins.  The ambiguity of her mysterious forms challenges us to ponder similar questions.
