Contrary to many collaboration scenarios, James Gimzewski contacted Victoria Vesna with scientific findings that he thought could have artistic interests. Their work Blue Morph started with a recording of the cellular transformations occurring during metamorphosis using laser. The rhythm moves through various stages and with increasing intensity. Simultaneously, Gimsweski collected a series of photos of the butterflies transforming which produces a blue colour. The work juxtapositions the two recording of violent surges broken by silence and stillness.
Their talk was amusingly peppered with an element of jet lag.
