Studying marble sculpting in Tinos island, while being a traveller, living as a traveller and exploring myself i started reading more and more about our existence. i was reading an article about phytoplankton. The name comes from the Greek words φυτόν (phyton), meaning “plant”, and πλαγκτός (planktos), meaning “wanderer” or “drifter”.

While exploring the world of Ernst Haeckel as pictured in “Art forms in nature” and “Art forms from the abyss”, and Karl Blossfeldt’s “Art forms in the plant world”, I felt in need of creating a new lifeform – a living form – a new species.
