Exquisite Photosynthesis, Greenhouse Gases, Dusting Bluebelles

Mirroring the layers of denial about global warming. ‘Exquisite Photosynthesis’ is inspired by my favourite equation. The equation for life. 6CO2 + 6H2O → C6H12O6 + 6O2. This means that the reactants, six carbon dioxide molecules and six water molecules, are converted by light energy captured by chlorophyll (implied by the arrow) into a sugar molecule and six oxygen molecules.

Photosynthesis one-way and aerobic respiration the other way.

Other works in this series can be seen in full at the ‘Alternative Processes’ Photography Exhibition at Electro studios 24 - 31st October 2022.
