REM - A trip to hidden spaces

My occupation with space and its hybrid structural levels led me to bionics (= derivation of complex connections and non-linear effects in nature).

Bionic travel:
Viewed through the microscope, images appear which do not seem to have any familiar structures, but remind us of dreamlike forms we know from the REM sleep phase (rapid eye movement).
The more one delves into spaces hidden to the unaided eye with the REM (raster electron microscope), the more intense the memory. After magnifying a one-celled organism 5000 times, the image "tips," revealing formations reminiscent of large, complex structures such as coral reefs. The silicate of diatoms and radiolaria has formed the basis of clay-rich areas since the Precambrian, and simultaneously symbolizes the digital age.
The μ-sized one-celled plants and animals are surrounded by many forms of silicon shells whose structure has not yet been able to be decoded.

My desire to transform these round images into three-dimensional forms grew as I looked into the REM. Extremely high magnifications create astonishing pictures of living systems. These worlds, i.e. non-linear orders, enable a view in the future of things.
The 40 cm high terracottas are dynamically grouped in three color-groups on various spatial levels.
Using circles and spheres as their bases, these hollow forms have textures on the outside which remind one of imprints of industrial metal chassis, sensors, and grid structures.
